In this Sunday, May 17, 2015 photo, Iraqi Sunni tribal leaders demand Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to send forces to protect their city and regain Ramadi shortly after Iraqi security forces withdraw from the city during a press conference in Habaniyah town, 80 kilometers (50 miles) west of Baghdad, Iraq. Islamic State group militants likely killed up to 500 Iraqi civilians and soldiers and forced 8,000 people to flee from their homes as they captured Ramadi, a provincial official said Monday, while the extremists went door-to-door looking for policemen and pro-government tribesmen.
