Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has said that the city of Ramadi could be taken back from Islamic State militants "in days".

Iraqi forces have suffered a number of defeats at the hands of IS over the past year, and fled from a smaller militant force in Ramadi last week.

US Defence Secretary Ashton Carter said that the rout showed Iraqi troops lacked the will to fight.

Meanwhile the leader of the Lebanese Shia Hezbollah movement, Hassan Nasrallah, said the world faced an unprecedented danger from IS and other Sunni militant groups fighting in Syria.

Some observers say IS now controls 50% of Syria's entire territory - as well as a third of Iraq.
