RAMADI, IRAQ -- ISIS nabbed control of a key city in Iraq over the weekend. In recent fighting over the provincial capital city of Ramadi, it's estimated that more than 500 people have been killed, while many civilians are fleeing and those staying behind may face mass execution.

The terror group had originally wiggled its way into parts of the last year, but ISIS officially declared victory on Sunday, after government security forces pulled out of a military base on the heels of the latest attacks. Now, Iraq's prime minister is sending in reinforcements, and Secretary of State John Kerry is downplaying the significance of the city. But there's no denying this hurts. Actually, it kills.
