ISIS Suicide Bombers Kill At Least 60 in Iraq

ISIS has claimed responsibility for three separate suicide attacks that killed at least 60 people and injured dozens of others in southern Iraq.

Security officials told Reuters it appears the attacks were a way of showing Islamic State followers the group is still strong and has a hold in other parts of the country despite recent territorial losses.

Reuters reports the gunmen wore security force uniforms and drove stolen army vehicles. They used car bombs and suicide vests to target a security checkpoint and two restaurants on a busy highway.
