Iraq's military says militants have ambushed a convoy of off-duty soldiers near a town in the country's sprawling western desert, killing at least 10 and wounding 20. 

Maj Emad al-Dulaimi said the attack took place the night before near the town of Rutba. He says the militants were armed with assault rifles and rockets. Al-Dulaimi blamed the Islamic State group. 

Rutba lies about 390 kilometers west of Baghdad in the country's vast Anbar province. It's the last sizable town on the way to the border with Jordan.
