Islamic State: RAF jets strike first targets in Iraq

RAF jets have carried out their first strikes on Islamic State targets in Iraq, attacking a "heavy weapon position" and an armed pick-up truck.

The Ministry of Defence said the attacks were in support of Kurdish units in the north-west of the country.

The strikes - by two GR4 Tornados - came four days after parliament approved military action, and were said to be "successful".
