- The United States will deploy additional forces to Iraq and make Apache attack helicopters available to support the country's troops, US Secretary of Defence Ashton Carter said Monday in Baghdad.

"We are going to bring in additional forces," Carter said, adding that the Apaches will support Iraqi efforts to surround and eventually recapture second city Mosul from the Islamic State jihadist group.

A senior US defence official said around 200 additional American military personnel would be deployed, pushing the total figure past 4,000.
