FALLUJA, Iraq – Rescuers dug the bodies of six members of one family — a
couple and their four children — out of the rubble of an Iraqi house
bombed by U.S. warplanes on Wednesday, witnesses said.

The house was destroyed during air strikes on the insurgent-held town of
Falluja, 50 km (32 miles) west of Baghdad.

A Reuters cameraman filmed the dead bodies being removed from the rubble of
the house.

U.S. forces say their strikes are carefully targeted against fighters loyal
to Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a self-declared ally of al
Qaeda who the U.S. says is hiding in the town.

But Falluja residents say they know nothing about Zarqawi — some even
doubt his existence — and that the air raids regularly kill civilians and
destroy homes
