    Iraqi police killed two suicide attackers of the Daesh terrorist group (outlawed in numerous countries) in the city of Tikrit, during an attempted attack on a security forces post, according to an Iraqi Interior Ministry spokesperson.

    MOSUL (Sputnik) — A group of terrorists on Tuesday night made their way to the city of Tikrit, according to the spokesperson.

    "Two militants with suicide belts were shot by policemen while trying to detonate them at the security forces post," the spokesperson said.

    In June 2014, during the northern Iraq offensive, Daesh took control of Tikrit, the administrative capital of the Saladin governorate, north of Baghdad. The city was liberated from Daesh militants in March 2015.
