  Armed U.S. drones deployed in Iraq
Armed U.S. aerial vehicles are patrolling the skies above the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.
Pentagon officials say "predator" drones have been deployed to protect the city, which is considered the crown jewel for Islamic insurgents that are sweeping through the country.
The U.S. says the unmanned aircraft are intended to protect U.S. military assessment teams on the ground in Iraq.
The New York Times, citing an anonymous U.S. official, reports that Iran is also flying surveillance drones over Iraq and sending military equipment there to help the government in its fight against ISIL militants.
