Wild boars overrun Islamic State position, kill 3 militants

Al-Assi explained that the militants had already massacred 25 people attempting to flee the seized area of Hawija three days prior to the boars mauling them.

The Times report cited Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a leader of the tribesman fighting the Islamist group, who gave his own take on the boar attack: "It is likely their movement disturbed a herd of wild pigs, which inhabit the area as well as the nearby cornfields".
