55 killed in Iraq suicide bombing

55 feared dead as three blasts on Tuesday struck army convoys travelling in Anbar province to take part in a planned offensive aimed at retaking the provincial city of Ramadi from ISIL, Al Jazeera's Imran Khan, reporting from Baghdad, said.

ISIL has routinely used car bomb attacks to a "devastating effect" against Iraqi forces, he added.
"Car bombs have proven to be a very big problem for the Iraqi security forces," he said, noting that the tactic played a major part in the capture of Ramadi.
However, Brigadier General Saad Maan Ibrahim, the spokesman for the Joint Military Command, told The Associated Press that 17 troops were killed in the attacks.
