Iraqi forces lack will to fight - Ashton Carter

Views
US Defence Secretary Ashton Carter has said the rout of Iraqi forces at the city of Ramadi showed they lacked the will to fight against Islamic State.

Carter told CNN's State of the Union that the Iraqis "vastly out-numbered" the IS forces, but chose to withdraw.

However, the head of Iraq's defence and security committee said the comments were "unrealistic and baseless".

The Iraqi government has now deployed Shia militias to the area to try to halt the advance of IS.
