Fallujah: Al-Jazeera airs tape of attack against US Marines

Al-Jazeera television Saturday broadcast a videotape from the Islamic Army of Iraq showing a huge explosion against a U.S. foot patrol near Fallujah although it did not explicitly link it to the attack that killed 10 Marines. The Al-Jazeera announcer, however, noted the 10 Marine deaths Thursday near Fallujah as the tape aired.

It showed ground troops walked down a street on both sides of a Humvee when a huge fireball engulfed the scene, sending terrified Iraqi bystanders scrambling for their lives. Al-Jazeera said also claimed responsibility for a series of other attacks against U.S. forces north of Baghdad, in Nasiriyah and another in Fallujah, AP reports. P.T.
