US weapons 'expedited' to Iraq amid IS advance: Biden

The United States is sending “continued and expedited” weapons to Iraq, Vice President Joe Biden told Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, amid a major Islamic State group advance. The phone call took place after Islamic State extremists seized a government compound in the city of Ramadi earlier in the day, edging closer to what would be their biggest victory in Iraq this year. Biden thanked Abadi “for his steadfast leadership in Iraq and for promoting national unity at a time of significant security challenges, including today’s ISIL attack on Ramadi,” a White House statement said.
