An attack in Iraq resulted in 11 dead and more than a dozen wounded, security sources told AFP.

A local security source told AFP it is believed ISIS attacked a village in eastern Iraq, killing 11 and injuring 13.

Another source said the village was where many security service members lived.

Both the sources told AFP most of the villagers were part of the Bani Tamim tribe. One of the sources stated the village has been secured and a search is out for those who attacked it.

The attack follows an ISIS bombing in Uganda that killed at least one person Saturday.

Iraq said the terror group had been defeated in 2017, but a 2021 United Nations report stated there were 10,000 active ISIS fighters in Iraq and Syria.

Two other attacks by the group occurred in Iraq in recent months, according to AFP. 

The country said earlier in October it had arrested the financial overseer of ISIS, Sami Jasim.
