BAGHDAD - Two weeks after declaring victory over Islamic State in Ramadi, Iraq's elite counter-terrorism forces have pushed militants out to its eastern suburbs, but bombs littering the streets are holding up efforts to rebuild the city, officials said.

Ramadi, the largest city retaken by government forces, was touted as the first major success for Iraq's army since it collapsed in the face of Islamic State's lightning advance across the country's north and west 18 months ago.

But almost all the city remains off-limits to its residents, most of whom fled before the army advance, said security services.
