BAGHDAD - Islamic State fighters overran one of the last remaining districts held by government forces in the Iraqi city of Ramadi on Sunday and besieged a key army base on the edge of the western provincial capital, security sources said.

The militants seized most of Ramadi on Friday, planting their black flag on the local government headquarters in the center of the city, but a contingent of Iraqi special forces was holding out in the Malaab neighborhood.

Security sources said those forces retreated on Sunday to an area east of the city after suffering high casualties, and the insurgents were closing in on the Anbar Operations Command to the west.
