Iraqi groups aim for peace deal

IRAQI GROUPS AIM FOR PEACE DEAL

Negotiators in Iraq are aiming for a deal to avoid military intervention in Fallujah.

Under the terms, al-Qaeda-linked armed groups who seized the city would need to cede control to tribal leaders.

Military source said today tanks, artillery and troops would not attack, while efforts to end the standoff peacefully were under way.

Fighters of the al Qaeda-linked groups took control of Fallujah and parts of nearby Ramadi on January 1st -  a move which heightened sectarian tensions and fighting.
