BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Iraq captured five Islamic State commanders after its intelligence services lured them into crossing from neighbouring Syria, Iraqi state TV reported yesterday, describing the five as “some of the most wanted” leaders of the group. They were shown in yellow prisoner uniforms. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said last month he would “take all necessary measures” against militants based in Syria. The Iraqi air force carried out several air strikes since last year against Islamic State positions in Syrian territory.
