Thousands of civilians have fled escalating fighting between pro-government forces and jihadis in the Iraqi city of Ramadi over the past week, the United Nations said Friday.The fighting so far has centred around the provincial capital Ramadi, 100 kilometers (60 miles) west of Baghdad, and the Garma area farther east.Many of those are from Anbar, where fighting between government forces and militants had displaced hundreds of thousands even before ISIS overran most of the province in June last year.
