Iraqi police parade car bombs seized from Islamic State

Reuters reports:

Iraqi police displayed 23 vehicles that had been turned into car bombs and also an anti-aircraft gun, all captured from Islamic State militants during the battle for the city of Mosul.

The vehicles shown to the media were mostly civilian cars, covered in thick metal armor, with small glass ports for a driver to see through, and had been equipped with bombs.

They appear similar to vehicles used in apparent suicide attacks shown in Islamic State propaganda.
