FALLUJAH, Iraq (AFP) - US troops tackled Fallujah`s last tenacious insurgents but were still days away from completing major search operations, as the mutilated body of a Caucasian woman was found by marines.

With a convoy carrying aid for thirsty and hungry civilians in the rebel enclave still blocked by the military, US-led forces said that more than 1,200 insurgents had been killed in the assault launched late November 7.

Meanwhile, in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, the country`s third largest, Iraqi and US troops moved in after days of unchecked lawlessness, with clashes erupting between rebels and security forces Sunday.
