Iraqi forces have pushed Islamic State fighters out of the western town of al-Baghdadi.

The town, which was taken over by IS last month, is about 8km from a base housing hundreds of US troops who are training Iraqi soldiers.

Iraqi forces moved in after "precise and effective" air strikes by the US-led coalition.

Meanwhile, IS was widely condemned on Friday after it bulldozed the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud in Iraq.
