Now that the Iraqi army has recaptured the city of Ramadi from "Islamic State" (IS) militants, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has said the army would go on to liberate Mosul. He vowed that IS would be driven from the entire country in 2016.
Iraq's prime minister has said that the courts will decide if 16-year-old Linda W. should face the death penalty for her involvement with IS. The German teen ran away last summer after talking with extremists online.
Iraq has launched a major operation to retake Hawija, one of the last "Islamic State" strongholds in the country. Plans to oust the militants have been complicated by a referendum on Kurdish independence due next week.
Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadi has announced victory over the Islamic State in the city of Mosul. The EU hailed the defeat of IS but called on Iraqis to work together to improve their country.
The so-called "Islamic State" has been repeatedly accused of committing atrocities in Iraq. The UN is now ready to make sure evidence of potential war crimes will be preserved.
