US Secretary of State John Kerry has arrived in Iraq's capital, Baghdad, as Sunni insurgents expand their control of towns across north-western Iraq.

Insurgents are reported to be trying to take control of a dam near the city of Haditha - its destruction could damage the country's electrical grid.

Yesterday, Isis-led rebels captured border crossings to Syria and Jordan.

The strategically important airport in the northern town of Tal Afar has also fallen to the rebels.

There are reports that the town itself has also fallen to the rebels.
