 ANBAR/ Aswat al-Iraq: Police sources said here today that army forces prevented Iraqi delegations from other provinces from entering to participate in Fallujah sit-in on the international highway.

The source told Aswat al-Iraq that the calls for their participation with Fallujah people went in vain.

The army, also, prevented a number of journalists coming from Baghdad to cover the event, while transmission equipments were taken without knowing the reasons.

The source added that the army is tightening security measures around the people in order not to be increased in numbers, thus, closing all vents leading to them.

Anbar province is witnessing protest demonstrations for the last few days, where the protestors, including politicians and parliamentarians, demanded the release of innocent detainees, adoption of general amnesty law, redeeming the political path on the basis of "real partnership" and ending the neglect practiced against Sunni sect.

Other demonstrators called to topple Premier Maliki's government and put it into account.
