The US has carried out airstrikes in Iraq in support of troops who were being attacked by Islamic State fighters.

They were the first made as part of expanded efforts outlined by US President Barack Obama last week.

Meanwhile Iraq has criticised the decision not to invite Iran to an international summit on the IS threat.
