Chuck Hagel has resigned as US defence secretary after less than two years in the top post.

President Barack Obama confirmed his resignation and paid tribute to his "class and integrity".

68 year old Hagel, a Vietnam war veteran and former Republican senator, said it had been his life's "greatest privilege".

Last month, it was reported that he was sharply critical of the US strategy against Islamic State and in relation to the Syria regime.

He will stay on as secretary until his successor is confirmed.
