In this picture taken on Sunday, Feb. 2, 2014, Tribal fighters supported by Iraqi security forces scan the area during a patrol in Ramadi, 70 miles (115 kilometers) west of Baghdad, Iraq. Al-Qaida-linked fighters and their allies seized control of the city of Fallujah and parts of the Anbar provincial capital Ramadi last month after authorities dismantled a protest camp by Sunnis angry at what they consider second-class treatment by the Shiite-led government. The government and its tribal allies are besieging the rebel-held areas, with fighting reported daily. (AP Photo)
