Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has announced the start of a military operation to retake Falluja from so-called Islamic State.

Iraq's military has already warned civilians to leave the town.

Falluja was the first city to fall to IS in 2014 and is one of only two of its remaining strongholds in Iraq.

The Iraqi military told state TV that those who could not flee should raise a white flag above their homes.
