US-led forces helping Iraqi troops fight extremists have scaled back operations, a US defense official told AFP Saturday, a day after a US strike killed top Iranian and Iraqi commanders.

“We have increased security and defensive measures at Iraqi bases that host coalition troops,” the official added.
