Splits emerge among Iraq’s Sunni rebels

Reports suggest Islamic State group is arresting former Baathists and other rebels who do not share its vision.

Reports have emerged of fighters from the Islamic State group arresting former Baathists and other Sunni rebels who share the aim of toppling the Iraqi government.

Many Sunni Arabs have joined fighters loyal to the self-proclaimed caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in fighting the Iraqi army but do not want the group to take control of the country.
