Car bombs killed 12 people, including five soldiers, in the Iraqi capital and the city of Ramadi to the west on Saturday, police and medical sources said, in attacks that resembled operations carried out by ISIS militants.Two bombs exploded in separate attacks in Baghdad's mainly Shiite Amil district, said a police source. ISIS militants have in the past claimed responsibility for attacks in Baghdad and they have used bombings to fend off Iraqi security forces trying to retake Ramadi and other strongholds.President Barack Obama has approved sending up to 1,500 more troops to Iraq, roughly doubling the number of U.S. forces on the ground.
