Islamic State: Rabia hospital 'reduced to rubble'

Kurdish forces in northern Iraq have been keeping up their drive to recapture the ground they lost to a lightning offensive by militants from the self-styled Islamic State (IS) two months ago.

Much of the fighting has been in the north-west near the border with Syria, where Kurdish Peshmerga troops recently recaptured the border town of Rabia, helped by British airstrikes.

Jim Muir visited the front there to see the damage inflected by the air strikes and the casualties suffered by the Peshmerga as a result of IS suicide bombers.
