U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he is confident the Islamic State takeover of the western Iraqi city of Ramadi would be reversed in coming weeks.

Kerry told a news conference in Seoul that Ramadi had been a target of opportunity for the Islamist militants.

Islamic State militants said they had taken full control of Ramadi yesterday in the biggest defeat for the Baghdad government since last summer.

On Saturday, U.S. officials said special forces had carried out a raid inside Syria that killed a man identified as a senior Islamic State leader, Abu Sayyaf.
