Iraq Sunni militant group vows to march on Baghdad
BAGHDAD, Iraq - An al-Qaida-inspired group has vowed to march on to Baghdad after seizing two key Sunni-dominated cities in Iraq.
A spokesman for the Islamic State of Iran and the Levant says the group has old scores to settle with the Shiite-led government in Baghdad.
The spokesman, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, also threatened that ISIL fighters will take the southern Iraqi Shiite cities of Karbala and Najaf, which hold two of the holiest shrines for Shiite Muslims.
The statement, which could not be independently verified, came in an audio posting Thursday on militant websites commonly used by the group.
