US President-elect Donald Trump has named Gen James Mattis, a former marine who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, as his defence secretary.

"He's our best," Trump said, as he announced his pick in a speech in Ohio.

Gen Mattis, who is known as "Mad Dog", was an outspoken critic of the Obama administration's Middle East policy, particularly on Iran.

He has referred to Iran as "the single most enduring threat to stability and peace in the Middle East".
