Iraqi forces reached the center of Falluja last week but militants remained holed up in some parts of the city west of Baghdad, including in its Golan district, which Iraqi forces retook on Sunday. The assault is part of a wider offensive by Iraqi forces against Islamic State militants who seized swathes of territory in 2014 but are now being driven back by an array of forces backed by a U.S.-led coalition.

China's finance minister said fallout from Thursday's referendum "will cast a shadow over the global economy" while a senior official in Tokyo warned of the danger of "speculative, violent moves" in currencies. In Britain, open political conflict spread from the ruling Conservatives to the opposition, and senior Labour lawmakers attempted a coup against their leader after traditional supporters rejected the party's pro-EU stand in droves.
