Iraqi government forces say they have retaken some districts around Tikrit in their fight to recapture the city from Islamic State.

A force of about 30,000 troops and militia are said to be attacking on different fronts, backed by air strikes from Iraqi jets.

Tikrit, north of the capital Baghdad, fell to IS militants last June.

The Pentagon said that the US was not providing any air power in support of the operation.
