Iraqi military say militants have taken two border crossings

BAGHDAD - Iraqi military officials say Sunni militants have captured two border crossings as they press on with their offensive.

The officials say militants seized a crossing into Jordan and another into Syria after government forces there pulled out.

The insurgents have also captured four towns since Friday in Anbar province, where militants linked to al-Qaida have controlled the city of Fallujah and parts of the provincial capital Ramadi since January.
