BBC > Offensive in northern Iraqi town

US and Iraqi forces have launched an offensive to drive insurgents out of the northern Iraqi town of Talafar, the US military has said.
Reports say at least 17 people were killed in the fighting, and doctors reported dozens more wounded.
The operation follows clashes last week in the town, described by US military as "a hotbed of militant activity".
Meanwhile in Falluja, west of Baghdad, US troops fired missiles at alleged militant sites killing at least seven.
