Iraqi Shia militias and Kurdish forces are continuing their advance against Islamic

State militants after breaking the siege of Amerli in northern Iraq.

The joint forces have also seized the militant stronghold of Suleiman Beg.

Meanwhile Amnesty International says that it has uncovered new evidence that Islamic State have launched a campaign of ethnic cleansing in the north.

The UN is sending a team to Iraq to investigate "acts of inhumanity on an unimaginable scale.

Violence in Iraq has escalated dramatically in recent months as IS, formerly known as Isis, and allied Sunni rebels have taken control of large parts of northern and western Iraq.

Thousands of people have been killed, the majority of them civilians, and more than a million have been forced to flee their homes.
