Iraqi government forces have seized large areas of the town of Baiji - home to Iraq's biggest oil refinery - from Islamic State fighters, officials say.
They said the troops controlled some 50% of the town, about 200km (130 miles) north of the capital Baghdad.
IS-led militants took Baiji in June, in one of their earliest victories, but did not capture the refinery.
