In this photo released by the Iraqi Army taken on March 20, 2014, Iraqi Security forces deploy after clashes with militants in Ramadi, 70 miles (115 kilometers) west of Baghdad, Iraq. This grueling urban warfare in the Ramadi suburb of al-Bakir, witnessed by an Associated Press reporter, is part of a deadly standoff pitting government forces and allied tribal militias against the Islamic State and allied rebels in Anbar province, the heartland of Iraq’s Sunni minority. They hold part of the provincial capital Ramadi and nearly all of nearby city of Fallujah.(AP Photo/Iraqi Army)
