National Edition News cover for February 17, 2014 - ‘Al Qaeda’ turns into a tangled web of words: Masked anti-government gunmen hold their weapons as they stand guard in Fallujah, 40 miles (65 kilometers) west of Baghdad, Iraq. Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014. The situation deteriorated significantly in late December, when security forces dismantled a protest camp near the Anbar provincial capital of Ramadi. To defuse tensions, security forces withdrew from Ramadi and the nearby city of Fallujah. Al-Qaida-linked militants promptly took over parts of Ramadi and the center of Fallujah. Since then, the government and allied tribes have been struggling to wrest control of the cities back from the militants. Al-Qaida-led militants are battling for control of mainly Sunni areas to the west of the Iraqi capital in a key test of the Shiite-led government's ability to maintain security in the country more than two years after the withdrawal of U.S. troops.
