Iraq's Shiite militias have withdrawn from the forefront of an offensive to recapture Tikrit from Islamic State jihadists, allowing Baghdad government troops to take the lead, a top US general said Thursday.
The Shiite militias "have pulled back from that area" and Iraqi special forces and police are "clearing" Tikrit, General Lloyd Austin, head of US Central Command, told lawmakers.
