The al Qaeda-inspired militants who overran two Iraqi cities in as many days apparently have new orders: march on Baghdad.

An audio recording purportedly from the spokesman for the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant - known as ISIS or ISIL - boasts of the group's recent successes and urges his fighters to advance on the Iraqi capital.

"Roll up your sleeves of seriousness. Do not give up one span of land that you have liberated," spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani says. "March to Baghdad... We have a score to settle."
