Tribes and government forces appear to be making headway against al-Qaeda militants, avoiding for now a large Iraqi army offensive into Sunni cities that risked triggering a broader civil war, officials said Thursday.

Abed said stores in Ramadi are opening and police are trickling back to their posts.
