A series of victories against terrorists in Iraq is a "unifying factor" for the conflict-ridden country, according to the UN's most senior representative there.

Areas which had been held by the ISIL terrorist group, also known as Daesh, have been retaken and show, according to the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General Ján Kubiš, that Iraqis are capable of defeating terrorism with the support of the international community.

Basma Baghall has been speaking to Mr Kubiš.
