Major General Negm Abdullah Ali (L), army commander of the sixth division gather with Iraqi army west of Baghdad, June 24, 2014. Senior Iraqi Major General Ali was killed in fighting with insurgents in the Ibrahim Bin Ali area, about 16 km (10 miles) from Baghdad on July 7, 2014, as the army fights to hold militant Sunni Islamists back from the capital, the office of Maliki's military spokesman said. Security forces have been in a standoff with rebels in the area since the city of Fallujah, some 70 km (45 miles) west of Baghdad, was overrun by earlier this year. Picture taken June 24, 2014.
