US Chopper Shot Down
In Falluja - Witness

FALLUJA, Iraq (Reuters) - A U.S. helicopter was shot down over Falluja on Tuesday as U.S.-led forces were pressing home an offensive on the rebel-held city.
"I saw the helicopter collide with a rocket. It turned into a ball of fire and fell to the ground," said Reuters reporter Fadel al-Badrani. "There was smoke everywhere."
He said the helicopter crashed in the city's Jolan district. There was no immediate word on casualties.
A U.S. military spokesman said he had no information on the report.
