BAGHDAD - Iraqi forces regained ground from Islamic State militants in western Iraq on Sunday, advancing on the city of Ramadi one week after it fell to the insurgents.

A police major and a pro-government Sunni tribal fighter in the area said they had retaken the town of Husaiba al-Sharqiya, about 10 km east of Ramadi, with the help of Shi'ite paramilitaries.
