The fight against Islamic State militants in Western Iraq is growing in strength with backing from the US military.
A military spokesman said Iraqi soldiers had captured two fighters, one a Saudi national and the other from Tajikistan.
Meanwhile a shipment of arms to Kurdish forces from Britain arrived in Irbil on Thursday. The machine guns and ammunition are understood to have cost two million euros.
British Prime Minister David Cameron says he has not ruled out British involvement in any military strikes.
