Official sources reported that five suicide attacks have killed at least four Iraqi security forces and injured ten others in western Iraq.

Sheikh Mal-Allah al-Obeidi, the town council chief in al-Baghdadi, Anbar province, reported that five suicide bombers attacked his guesthouse early morning on Wednesday, killing a guard and wounding 10 others.

The Sheikh said two other suicide bombers attacked the police patrol on its way to the crime scene, killing the local police chief and two policemen.

A police officer, anonymous and unauthoritized to speak to the press, confirmed reports and casualty figures.

Iraqi forces retook the town of Al-Baghdadi from Daesh in March 2015, with the support of U.S.-led airstrikes.
