((Scrambling to find loved ones beneath the rubble, bewildered residents in the troubled town of Fallujah wonder what happened to the ceasefire called here two months ago.

The US military said the target of the airstrike was a "known hideout" of a terrorist group with links to Abu Musab al Zarqawi... The Jordanian militant is a suspected agent of Al Qaeda...the mastermind behind several suicide car bomb attacks in Iraq...and thought to be the man shown beheading US hostage Nicholas Berg last month.
