In Iraq, a chemical weapons expert from the Islamic State group has been captured by US special forces and is being questioned. Iraqi and US sources told US media, the man was once a specialist in chemical and biological weapons for Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi leader overthrown by the US invasion in 2003. 
Named as Sleiman Daoud al-Afari, he was reportedly seized last month. In a statement to the BBC, the Pentagon would not confirm his capture. However, its spokesman confirmed US special forces had begun operations in Iraq, part of a more aggressive strategy against IS.
