US says situation in Ramadi 'contested' after IS claims takeover

Residents of Ramadi flee their homes on May 16, 2015 as Islamic State group militants tightened their siege on the last government positions in the capital of Anbar provinceThe Pentagon said the situation in Ramadi, which IS militants claim to have seized from Iraqi forces, remains “fluid and contested” following reports of continued violence in the strategic city. “We’re continuing to monitor reports of tough fighting in Ramadi and the situation remains fluid and contested,” Pentagon spokeswoman Maureen Schumann told AFP in a statement. “It is too early to make definitive statements about the situation on the ground there at this time,” she added. The Islamic State group said earlier Sunday it had taken full control of the Iraqi city after a bloody assault, in a statement posted on jihadist Internet forums.
