BEIRUT - US-backed Syrian militias said they fully captured the town of Tabqa and an adjacent dam, Syria's largest, from Islamic State on Wednesday, some 40 km (25 miles) west of Raqqa city.

With air strikes and special forces from the US-led coalition, the Syrian Democratic Forces, an alliance of Kurdish and Arab fighters, have been closing in on Raqqa, Islamic State State's base of operations in Syria.
