Iran strikes 'target Islamic State in Iraq'

Iran is believed to conducted air strikes against Islamic State (IS) in eastern Iraq in recent days, according to a Pentagon spokesman.

Rear Adm John Kirby said the US, which has conducted its own air strikes in Iraq, was not co-ordinating with Iran.

Without confirming the air strikes directly, a top Iranian official also dismissed talk of co-operation.
