ANKARA - Turkey said on Sunday it would halt further transfers of troops to an area near the Islamic State-controlled city of Mosul in Iraq after Baghdad threatened to appeal to the United Nations to force Turkey to withdraw its soldiers.

Turkey deployed hundreds of forces to a camp near the Mosul in the north on Thursday, calling it a routine rotation in a training program but angering Baghdad, which said it had been done without consultation.
