Iraqi forces yesterday, wrested back control of key areas west of Baghdad that have been out of government hands for weeks amid a deadly standoff between militants and security forces.

The battles in Anbar province, a mostly-Sunni desert region that shares a border with Syria and a protracted surge in nationwide violence, have left more than 850 people dead so far this month, fuelling fears Iraq is slipping back into the all-out conflict that plagued it in 2006 and 2007.

Washington has said it plans to sell Iraq 24 Apache attack helicopters in a 4.8 billion dollars deal to help the country fight militants.
