US allies are ready to send roughly 1,500 security personnel to Iraq to help the Baghdad government in its fight against militants.

The move reflects a widening international campaign against the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq, and follows Washington's decision to double its military footprint to 3,100 troops.

The coalition of mainly Western and Arab states was set up after IS militants swept across northern Iraq, seizing swathes of territory and proclaiming a caliphate in parts of the country and neighbouring Syria.
