Isis militants seize parts of Iraq town 13 minutes away from US base holding 320 Marines

Isis militants seized control of parts of the western Iraqi town of al-Baghdadi, close to an air base where 320 US Marines are training Iraqi soldiers.

The town is northwest of Ramadi, in Anbar province, and has been under attack from the insurgents for months.

Much of the province was attacked by Isis during its bloody advance through Iraq and Syria, and now ninety per cent of the district has now been captured by fighters, a local official said.
