British strikes on Islamic State group begin: the view from Iraq

RAF Tornados have carried out their first strikes against Islamic State militants, destroying two targets in north west Iraq.

The attacks are the first actual strikes after a number of sorties since parliament authorised British involvement in the military campaign on Friday.

Foreign Affairs Correspondent Jonathan Rugman is in Dohuk in Northern Iraq, and reports from there.
