Iraq forces in ‘full control’ of central Ramadi – BBC News

Iraqi officials say the army is now in “full control” of central Ramadi, where so-called Islamic State (IS) has been resisting an army offensive.

A former government compound, where IS fighters had been holding out, has been retaken, Iraqi security sources say.

However there were still “pockets of resistance” in parts of the city, the provincial governor’s spokesman said.
