ISIS launched a coordinated attack on government-held areas of the western Iraqi city of Ramadi Wednesday, involving seven almost simultaneous suicide car bombs, police said.At least 10 people were killed and 30 wounded in the attack, according to initial reports by police and hospital sources in the city, capital of Anbar province. Ramadi lies about 100 kilometers (60 miles) west of Baghdad and is the capital of the vast Sunni Arab province of Anbar, most of which is under jihadi control.The onslaught on the government-held center of Ramadi coincides with Baghdad's push to retake the ISIS stronghold of Tikrit, about 160 kilometers (100 miles) north of Baghdad.
