Islamic State suicide attacks in Iraq’s Anbar kill 30 troops
BAGHDAD – Iraqi authorities say multiple Islamic State suicide attacks targeting a police base have killed at least 30 troops in western Anbar province.
Police officials said three suicide bombers on Monday simultaneously drove their Humvees, seized from the Iraq army, into a police base in the Tharthar area. The attacks caused a large explosion in an ammunition depot inside the base.
Police said some Shiite militiamen were also stationed in the base. More than 40 troops were wounded in the attack.
