Islamic State militants kill 14 Iraqi soldiers

Islamic State militants detonated a car bomb and then opened fire on Iraqi troops in the western province of Anbar on Thursday, killing 14 soldiers, security sources said. Iraqi government forces and their Shi’ite militia allies are hoping to recapture Anbar’s provincial capital Ramadi, which was seized by the ultra-hardline Sunni insurgents last month. Islamic State swept through northern Iraq last year and has since taken control of a third of the country, a major oil producer and OPEC member. It also holds large swathes of Syria.
