Iraqi forces say they have recaptured the centre of the town of Hawija, one of the last enclaves of so-called Islamic State (IS) in the country.

Hawija, where tens of thousands of civilians live, has been under the militant group's control since 2014.

Once the surrounding area falls, IS will be left controlling only a stretch of land along the border with Syria.

On Wednesday (04), the Iraqi army said it had killed 196 IS militants and recaptured 98 villages around Hawija.
