US condemns 'barbarism'
The United States on Saturday said it was closely watching developments in Iraq's Anbar province, where militants have taken control of Fallujah, condemning Al-Qaeda-linked fighters for committing "barbarism."


Iraq has been fiercely battling the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) since Monday, when security forces broke up an anti-government protest camp near Ramadi set up after demonstrations erupted in late 2012 against what Sunni Arabs say is the marginalization and targeting of their community.
