Iraq-USA, Politics, 9/4/2004
Two Iraqis were killed and other 8 were injured in an American artillery bombardment that targeted a military barrack for the Iraqi forces which assume peace keeping in Faluja city to the west of Baghdad.
The American tanks opened fire from its artillery intensively at al-Shuhadaa ( martyrs ) quarters to the east of the city. The bombardment came following demonstrations that took place in the city following Friday's prayers in protest of the American raid on Wednesday when some 20 Iraqis were killed.
The demonstration was called for by mosques preachers in Falluja who also asked for the need of keeping the Iraqi police and army forces in the city.
On the other hand, the American forces in al-Sader city called on members of al-Mahdi army which belong to the Shiite leader Muqtada al-Sader to hand over their heavy weapons after the truce which was announced by al-Sader on Monday.

The American forces also arrested yesterday in al-Ratbeh city 10 persons after one explosive went off in one of the city's streets on Thursday evening.
