Militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant have overrun the Iraqi city of Tikrit and moved closer to the Baji oil refinery, the biggest refinery in the country, as they make gains in their rapid military advance against the Shi'ite-led Iraqi government.

The ISIL seized the city of Mosul on June 10 in their push to create a Sunni Caliphate straddling the border between Iraq and Syria.
