The UN's envoy to Iraq has warned of a "critical humanitarian situation" in Anbar province, as troops prepare to launch a major assault against al-Qaeda-linked militants in Fallujah.

Nickolay Mladenov said more than 5,000 families had fled the city as food, water and medicine began to run out.

An Iraqi Red Crescent official put the figure far higher - at 13,000 families.

Earlier, Iraq's prime minister urged the militants who have seized control of Fallujah to give up their struggle.
