PLEASE NOTE: EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL THAT WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 Iraqi Defence Ministry video shows Saturday's aerial bombardment of militant targets in Anbar Province. The ministry says a number of militants were killed and vehicles damaged. More Defence Ministry footage shows life in the city of Samarra where there's been fighting in recent days. The video shows people apparently getting on with their daily lives as soldiers patrol the streets. Fighting between government forces and Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant militants is still raging in and around several cities in the north and west. Some remain in the grip of the insurgents, others under the tenuous control of Iraqi government troops. Iraqi forces say they're making some headway. This video, also from the Defence Ministry, shows troops with a large cache of weapons thought to belong to the militants. The haul, discovered in an area south of Baghdad, includes large quantities of explosive materials, bullets and mortar rounds.
