Reports: Ramadi falls to ISIS

Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) jihadists have raised their black flag over the provincial government compound in the city of Ramadi in western Iraq on Friday.
The insurgents attacked Ramadi overnight using six suicide car bombs to reach the city centre, where the Anbar governorate compound is located, police sources said.

Ramadi has been contested since last year but the insurgents renewed their offensive on the city in April, gaining ground to the north and east, and launched a fierce assault overnight on Friday.

Seizing the compound gives them nearly full control over Anbar’s provincial capital, the group and officials said.
