The US says it is speeding up the supply of military equipment to Iraq to help its government fight militant groups in western Anbar province.

The White House said additional surveillance drones would be delivered within weeks and more Hellfire missiles sent in the next few months.

Fighting in Anbar has led to some of the heaviest clashes in Iraq for years.

Iraqi forces are preparing for an assault on the city of Fallujah, which has fallen to the militants.
