Seven Iraqi paramilitary fighters have been killed in a suicide attack near the city of Samarra north of Baghdad on Thursday, Reuters reported, citing a statement by the military.

Three more fighters were injured in the attack, the statement said, adding that no group has claimed responsibility for it.

Iraqi forces and paramilitary groups, mostly Shi’ite Muslim, are fighting an insurgency by Daesh* militants, who used to have control over the territory two years ago.
