The US is to send up to 450 military advisers to Iraq to help train local forces fighting Islamic State.

President Obama made the decision following a request from Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi.

The troops will be deployed to the Taqaddum military base in Anbar province.

IS seized Ramadi - the capital of Anbar - in May.

It has made gains across the region despite US-led coalition air strikes.
