Rebel assault routs Iraqi security forces in Fallujah, killing at least 20 and freeing prisoners

Guerrillas shouting ”God is great” launched a bold daylight assault on an Iraqi police station and security compound west of Baghdad on Saturday, freeing prisoners and sparking a gunbattle that killed 21 people and wounded 33, police and hospital officials said.

This attack appears to be a first, both in the level of ferocity and in that the rebels succeeded in driving back  government forces.
