Iraqi security officials say al-Qaeda-inspired militants have seized the northern city of Tikrit. The two officials in Baghdad told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Saddam Hussein’s hometown was under the control of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, whose fighters this week took control of Mosul, the country’s second largest city. The officials say the provincial governor based in the city is missing. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to release the information.
