  Fighting starts again in Falluja
Updated 26 April 2004, 21.18
There has been lots of fighting in Falluja
US troops and Iraqis have been fighting again in Falluja, despite an agreement to stop the violence at the weekend.

More than 100 Iraqi fighters are said to have attacked a US patrol, killing one marine and injuring eight.

There were also reports of fighting outside the southern city of Najaf, and an explosion in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, that killed two US soldiers.

Earlier it was reported more UK troops may be sent to Iraq following Spain's decision to remove all its soldiers.

Falluja, Iraq
The fighting near Falluja came after the US decided not to start a full-scale attack on the city.

But there have been lots of problems in the area, with a number of Iraqis saying US troops are killing people there who aren't soldiers.

The US military say they are doing as much as possible to avoid hurting ordinary people, but say the people fighting them are making things worse.
