At least six people were killed in a suicide attack in central Iraq, a security source said Sunday.
A suspected ISIL suicide bomber targeted families trying to flee the town of Hit, near Ramadi, the source said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media. Twelve were injured in the blast.
Fighting between ISIL and Iraqi government forces around Hit has seen people targeted by roadside bombs to prevent them from fleeing the town.
The source also said 35 ISIL militants were killed in airstrikes by coalition forces near al-Kasriyat, about 90 kilometers (56 miles) west of Ramadi.
