Iraqi Government forces claims control of disputed areas held by Kurdish forces

Iraqi Government forces say they have retaken control of more disputed areas previously held by Kurdish forces.

The positions in Nineveh province, including the Mosul dam, had been captured by Kurdish Peshmerga fighters over the past three years.

Earlier this week, soldiers, police and Special Forces took control of the city of Kirkuk and nearby oilfields.

The operation came weeks after the Kurds held an independence referendum.
