After Fallujah and Iraq were 'safer' according to the US military Brass. Not according to this documentary which shows footage of some of the thousands of refugees in makeshift camps - living in tents outside the city. Residents told the interviews that food aide had stopped and the were freezing and just wanted to go home. But go home to what?
When Fallujans returned home it difficult to try and even find out where they used to live. Seventy percent of the city was destroyed or severely damaged. Houses with dead bodies were marked by US Marines with a cross and a groups of Fallujan citizens were herded to collect the dead and bury them.
"We found the bodies right behind the front doors," said one resident. "It looked like they had opened their doors and were immediatly shot dead... these were mostly men who stayed behind to protect their own homes. It was Ramadan."
The film also shows the dead bodies of people who apparently asleep in their beds.
