Training the Iraqi army to fight so-called Islamic State

From minefields to car bombs, the improvised explosive device is the so-called Islamic State's weapon of choice, killing and injuring thousands of people.

After having cleared IS forces from an area, the Iraqi army is having to defuse and remove explosives the militants have left behind.

British soldiers, along with other forces, are training the Iraqis in how to deal with the threat.
