RAF Tornado jets sent on Iraqi combat mission

Two RAF jets have carried out their first combat mission over Iraq since Parliament authorised air strikes targeting Islamic State (IS) militants.

The Ministry of Defence said the two Tornado jets carried out armed reconnaissance operations, but did not conduct any air strikes.

They gathered intelligence which would be "invaluable", the MoD said.
