Iraqi government forces have recaptured a key district in the city of Ramadi, which is controlled by the jihadist group Islamic State.

The Counter-Terrorism Service said it had cleared the south-western area of Tamim after a fierce battle.

Soldiers and militiamen have been preparing for months for a final assault on Ramadi, and recently told residents to leave the city Centre.

Ramadi was captured by IS in May in an embarrassing defeat for the Iraqi army.

Last month, government forces completed their encirclement of the city when they retook the Palestine Bridge, which straddles the River Euphrates in the north-west.
