United States troops have secured control over the whole of rebellious Fallujah with more than 1,000 insurgents taken prisoner.

Colonel Michael Regner, operations officer for the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force at Fallujah, says "somewhere over 1,000" insurgents have been killed in the offensive that began on November 8.

"A 100 per cent of the city is secure," he said, but added that Marines were still involved in fighting in portions of the city and were sweeping house to house.
There will no doubt be fighting for weeks, but the bulk of the work seems to be done.
