Islamic state claims responsibility for west Iraq car bomb: Amaq

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Islamic State claimed responsibility for a suicide car bomb attack on a security checkpoint in western Iraq that killed at least eight people earlier on Wednesday, the group’s news agency Amaq said.

The hardline Sunni militant group said the attack killed 28 people, contradicting death toll provided by the local mayor which stood at eight deaths.
