RAMADI, April 16, 2014 (AFP) - Two suicide bombers blew up vehicles rigged with explosives outside a government compound in the Iraqi city of Ramadi on Wednesday, killing five people, police and a doctor said.

The twin attacks come as Iraq struggles to regain control of Anbar province, where anti-government fighters have held parts of Ramadi and all of the city of Fallujah, to its east, since early January.

Militants close dam as Iraq violence kills 15

04/14/2014 19:44 GMT

BAGHDAD, April 14, 2014 (AFP) - Militants have closed all gates of a Euphrates River dam they control in Iraq, blocking a major water source, a minister said on Monday, while violence killed 15 people.

The latest unrest comes amid a protracted surge in nationwide bloodshed that has claimed more than 2,550 lives so far this year and sparked fears of Iraq slipping back into the all-out sectarian killings of 2006 and 2007.
