Iraq, struggling to curb its worst violence in years, is offering bounties of up to $25,000 for killing or capturing a foreign jihadist fighter, state television reported Thursday.ISIS is a powerful jihadist group that carries out frequent attacks in Iraq, and has also flourished across the border during Syria's civil war.The bounties are the latest in a series of measures Iraq has enacted in a bid to curb a yearlong surge in violence, which has reached levels not seen since 2008, when the country was emerging from a brutal period of sectarian killings in which tens of thousands died.
