    BAGHDAD: A US marine was killed in action in Iraq's Al-Anbar province, which hosts the rebel hotspots of Fallujah and Ramadi, the marines said in a statement that gave no further details.

    Fighting erupted in Fallujah on Saturday after days of relative calm following last month's blistering assault on the former rebel stronghold.

    Marines clashed with insurgents in both the north and south of the city, which was largely emptied of people before the November 8 offensive.
