Iraqi forces have retaken some areas of the city of Tikrit from Islamic State militants.

They say IS has rigged explosives across the city to stop the advance.

The government troops - backed by Shia militias - earlier claimed to have captured the town of al-Alam, on the northern perimeter of Tikrit.

The offensive in Tikrit - which has been under IS control since last summer - is so far the biggest government operation against the jihadists.
