Jihadists take areas in Iraq’s Salaheddin province

Jihadists seized two areas of Iraq’s Salaheddin province on Tuesday, officials said, after taking control of all of one province and parts of another earlier in the day.

The militants moved into Siniyah and Sulaiman Bek, both located north of Baghdad, after security forces withdrew, an army brigadier general and a local official said.
