Rescuers pulled people from under rubble at a cafe in Hit, a city in Anbar province in Iraq, after a suicide attacker detonated an explosive there on October 11. In this video, people carry the body of a young man and lift him into an ambulance. Blood is visible on the floor of the ambulance. Iraqi military troops arrived in a military vehicle to the scene. An Iraqi flag is visible on one of their uniforms at 3:07. A Ministry of Interior spokesman told a local news outlet the suicide bomber was wearing an explosive vest that he detonated inside a cafe. At least seven people were killed in the attack, according to local media. Soon after reports of the attack, Amaq, the news outlet of the Islamic State, said there was a suicide attack on members of the Iraqi military in Hit, but did not explicitly claim responsibility.
