A week after launching an operation to retake the western city of Fallujah from Islamic State militants, Iraqi government forces were met with a counterattack. Reports said that militants halted the advance of Iraqi forces on the southern outskirts of the city. This comes as the United Nations warned that civilians are being used as human shields by the Islamic State fighters. (Reuters)
