"Iraq Says It's Halted Militant Group's Advance On Baghdad"
"The Iraqi government says it has halted a militant group's advance on Baghdad."
"As The Telegraph reports, the Iraqi army started engaging the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, after it made a rapid advance in which it captured the key city of Mosul."
"'Our security forces have regained the initiative,' said Maj Gen al-Moussawi, adding that the Iraqi army had won 'remarkable victories with the help of volunteers'."
Those volunteers to include various Shia militia, Al Qods forces, etc. Who knows?
