BAGHDAD (AFP) - More than 13,000 families have fled Fallujah in the past few days amid clashes and shelling after the city fell to Al-Qaeda-linked militants, the Iraqi Red Crescent said on Wednesday.

"Most of them are now living in schools, public buildings or with relatives," said Mohammed al-Khuzaie, a Red Crescent official.
