    Sunni militants said Sunday that they have seized two border crossings — one with Syria and one with Jordan — in addition to the four nearby towns captured since Friday, NBC News reported. The militants took the two crossings after overtaking Rutba in the Anbar province late Saturday, officials said. Four new towns — Qaim, Rawah, Anah and Rutba — have been seized by the ISIS militants since Friday. The capture of Rawah and Anah could mean the militants are looking to destroy a key dam in the city of Haditha, which could result in major flooding and damage to the country's electrical grid.
