Islamic State attacks west Iraq city with six car bombs

Islamic State militants attacked a provincial capital in western Iraq on Friday using six car bombs to reach the center of Ramadi, police said. Ramadi has been contested since last year but the insurgents renewed their offensive on the city in April, gaining ground to the north and east, and launched a fierce assault overnight on Friday. Police said the militants used an armoured bulldozer to remove blast walls blocking the road to the police department, and blew the vehicle up when it reached there.
