The US secretary of state has said the US will help Iraq fight al-Qaeda-linked militants, but that it is not planning to send troops back to the country.

John Kerry said he was confident the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki could defeat the militants.

Earlier, the Iraqi government said it had lost control of the strategic city of Fallujah, west of Baghdad.

Iraqi officials said they have lost control to the militant group, the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, known as Isis.
