US President Barack Obama on Wednesday approved the deployment of up to 450 more US military personnel to Iraq, in a bid to reverse gains by the Islamic State group.

The White House said that new deployment would be part of a "train, advise, and assist" mission for Iraqi government and tribal forces, which has already seen 3,000 US non-combat troops deployed.
