Britain Says Will Send More Army Trainers to Iraq to Help Fight Islamic ...

British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon said on a visit to Baghdad on Wednesday, that Britain will boost the number of its army trainers in Iraq in the coming weeks to support the Iraqi armed forces' battle against Islamic State militants. Britain said last month it had deployed a team of trainers to Iraq to help Kurdish peshmerga fighters maintain and use heavy machine guns against the ultra radical militants which have taken over large parts of Iraq and Syria. Britain also participated in U.S.-led air strikes against Islamic State, which beheaded 47-year-old British aid worker Alan Henning in October.
