Shiite Forces Mobilize to Retake Ramadi

Hosted by  • 

The government of Iraq has deployed two powerful Shiite militias to help retake the city of Ramadi from ISIS, the so-called Islamic state, which captured it Sunday. It's a risky strategy in volatile Anbar Province, with its mix of Sunni tribesmen and other security units. Nour Malas is reporting from Baghdad for the Wall Street Journal.
