Iraq Claims Recapture of Mosul Dam
Iraq says its forces and Kurdish fighters have retaken Mosul dam, the country's biggest, dislodging Islamic State militants who had seized it. The jihadists deny this but US air strikes against them have helped the Kurdish Peshmerga recapture some of the ground lost in the Islamists' rampage through northern Iraq since June. Iraqi forces now hope to win back Mosul itself.
