Iraq's Defence Minister Khaled al-Obeidi arrives at Tikrit university in Iraqi city of Tikrit
Iraq's Defence Minister Khaled al-Obeidi (C) arrives at Tikrit university in the Iraqi city of Tikrit December 8, 2014. Iraq's defence minister was reviewing his army's gains against Islamic State fighters north of Baghdad when his armoured convoy ran into sniper fire on the main north-south highway between Tikrit and Baiji. Gunners in the convoy replied with volleys of gunfire and their seven battle-scarred Humvees lumbered on uninterrupted, but Monday's incident underlined the limits of Iraqi army progress so far against the hardline militants. Obeidi was proving a point by making his first visit to Iraq's biggest oil refinery, where a battle that broke a five month siege has been the main focus of the government's U.S.-backed fightback against Islamic State.
