  • Smoke billows in the outskirts of Baiji refinery north of Tikrit, in the Salahaddin province, as the Iraqi army and Shiite popular mobilisation unit fighters conduct a joint operation to retake the remaining area of the oil refinery from Islamic State (IS) group jihadists, on May 25, 2015.

    Iraqi security forces and Shia fighters renewed efforts to retake the western Iraqi city of Ramadi on Monday, as Islamic State poured more fighters into the city that it claimed a week ago.
