Islamic State militants pounded the Iraqi government's security compound Thursday in the center of Anbar province's capital, Ramadi, as the governor calls for reinforcements and arms. Iraqi media report that government forces have lost part of Iraq's largest oil refinery in the town of Beiji, north of Baghdad.

Islamic State militants mounted waves of attacks on Ramadi's heavily fortified security zone overnight and into the day Thursday, using suicide car bombs against defenders of the city center.
