The Iraqi army says it has seized the last strongholds of the so-called Islamic State (IS) group in the city of Falluja, the BBC reports.

The head of the counterterrorism forces in the operation, Lt Gen Abdul-Wahad al-Saadi, said his troops had entered the northwestern Golan neighbourhood, the last area still under IS control.

The city was “fully liberated”, he said.

IS seized control of the city in January 2014.
