Fallujah disaster

Aid agencies say Falluja is 'big disaster':
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Aid agencies have called on U.S. forces and the Iraqi government to allow them to deliver food, medicine and water to Falluja, and saying that four days of intense fighting have turned the city into a 'big disaster'.

The Iraqi Red Crescent Society, which receives support from foreign agencies including the Red Cross and UNICEF, said on Friday it had asked U.S. forces and Iraq's interim government to let them deliver relief goods to Falluja and establish a medical team in the city's main hospital, but had received no reply.

'We call on the Iraqi government and U.S. forces to allow us to do our humanitarian duty to the innocent people,' said Firdoos al-Ubadi, Red Crescent spokeswoman."
