ISIS claims responsibility for deadly attack in Khanaqin
Follow up to this story from yesterday.
[Rudaw] The Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
group (ISIS) has grabbed credit for a Saturday attack on a Kakai village in Khanaqin which left seven people dead.

"[ISIS] killed and maimed 15 from the Iraqi security forces and Kakai community yesterday [Saturday] after fighters of the Islamic State targeted them in Diyala," claimed ISIS propaganda outlet al-Immaq.

"A security source told al-Immaq that snipers from the Islamic State opened fire on the Kakai community in Mekhas village in Khanaqin town, killing seven Kakais," it added.

Gunmen stormed the village of Dara in Khanaqin near the Iranian border Saturday night, killing six Kakai Kurds and a member of the security forces who responded to the firefight, Kadhim Pirouli, a member of a village council in Khanaqin, told Rudaw.

Dara is next to the village of Mekhas, both located northeast of Khanaqin in Iraq's eastern Diyala province. The area is populated by members of the Kakai minority who are ethnically Kurdish and hold unique spiritual beliefs.
