Insurgents moved into the town of Jalawla in eastern Iraq late on Thursday after security forces abandoned their posts there, security sources said.

Kurdish peshmerga forces deployed more men to secure their political party offices in Jalawla before the insurgents arrived in the town, which is in the province of Diyala, bordering Iran.
