GENEVA (Reuters) - More than 65,000 people have fled fighting in the Iraqi cities of Falluja and Ramadi during the past week, the U.N. refugee agency UNHCR said on Friday.

More than 140,000 have been made homeless since fighting broke out at the end of last year, UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards told a regular U.N. briefing in Geneva.
