BAGHDAD: ‘ CURFEW IMPOSED ON CAPITAL RAMADI OVER FEARS OF ISLAMIC STATE ADVANCE INTO THE CITY’

#AceWorldNews – BAGHDAD – October 17 – Authorities in Iraq’s western Anbar province have imposed a curfew in the capital Ramadi over fears that the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) might try to advance on the city.

The curfew began at midnight Friday to limit movement in and out of the city, AP quoted Sabah Karhout, the chairman of the Anbar provincial council, as saying.

The IS has been making gains around Ramadi in recent weeks against the Iraqi military, despite the US-led coalition’s airstrikes.
