nouri-al-maliki-securityofficials.Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki dismissed four of his top security officers on Tuesday for abandoning their "professional and military duty" a week after the fall of the northwest city of Mosul to the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant militants, the government said.

One of the commanders, Hidayat Abdulraheem, had fled a battle and would be referred to the military court to be tried in absentia, it said.
A major offensive by militants, spearheaded by terrorists from ISIL but involving other groups, overran all of Nineveh and chunks of three more provinces in a matter of days.
Security forces performed poorly during the initial days of the assault, in some cases shedding uniforms and abandoning vehicles to flee.
They seem to have recovered somewhat from the shock of the onslaught, retaking some areas, but the militants continue to gain ground elsewhere.
