Iraqi forces recaptured the local municipal building in Falluja from Islamic State, state television said on Friday, symbolising government control of the city, an hour's drive west of Baghdad, nearly four weeks after the offensive began.

A military statement said the federal police had raised the Iraqi flag above the building and were continuing to pursue the ultra-hardline militants, who continued to hold other areas.
