Baghdad - Witnesses say Islamic State (ISIS) group militants have publicly killed six Iraqi soldiers in Anbar province, where it continues to make gains despite an expanding US-led campaign of air strikes.

Witnesses say the soldiers - one in uniform and five in civilian clothes - were lined up against a wall Sunday in the town of Hit and shot in the head. They say the ISIS group also bombed a police station in Hit, located some 140km west of the capital, Baghdad.

The US has launched air strikes on ISIS group positions in Anbar.
