Armistice tense in south Iraq
Shiite militias withdrew from police stations in three cities as the cease-fire held in Fallujah.


April 13, 2004
BAGHDAD, Iraq — As a tenuous cease-fire held Monday in the restive Sunni city of Fallujah, a radical Shiite cleric pulled his militiamen out of police stations in three southern cities in an attempt to ease a standoff with the United States.

With quiet on both fronts, the scale of Iraq’s worst fighting since the fall of Saddam Hussein became clearer: The military reported about 70 coalition troops and 700 Iraqi insurgents killed so far this month. It was the biggest loss of life on both sides since the end of major combat a year ago.
