U.S. jets attack reported militant HQ in Fallujah
BAGHDAD, Iraq -- U.S. warplanes unleashed devastating airstrikes on an suspected hideout where operatives from an al-Qaida-linked group were meeting Monday, and hospital officials said 20 people died.
Also Monday, a video posted on a Web site in the name of the militants -- led by terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi -- purportedly showed the beheading of a kidnapped Turkish truck driver.
The U.S. military said jets carried out the strike on a site in Fallujah, where several members of a group led by al-Zarqawi were meeting. It was at least the fifth airstrike in the past week on the city.
