Iraqi troops repel ISIS attack on Anbar town

An image grab taken from a video uploaded on May 18, 2015 by Aamaq News Agency, a Youtube channel which posts videos from areas under the Islamic State (IS) group's control, allegedly shows IS fighters in a street of Ramadi, the Iraqi capital of Anbar province, a day after it was captured by IS. The fall of Ramadi has scuppered Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's efforts to build a credible cross-sectarian force to fight the Islamic State group, analysts said.
