The United States has said that it is speeding up the supply of military equipment to the country to help its government fight militant groups in Western Anbar province.

However, US Secretary of State, John Kerry, has categorically stated that no US Forces would return to Iraq.

The White House said that additional surveillance drones would be delivered within weeks and more hellfire missiles sent in the next few months.

Iraqi forces are preparing for an assault on the city of Fallujah, which has fallen to the militants.

The city of Ramadi has also fallen to anti-government Sunni tribes.
