A local official and a resident said, skirmishes broke out Tuesday between Iraqi security forces and militants on the outskirts of Tikrit, a day after the Iraqi and Kurdish troops backed by U.S. airstrikes dislodged Islamic militants from a strategic dam in the country’s north. The clashes began on the southwestern outskirts of the militant-held city of Tikrit, located about 130 kilometers (80 miles) north of the capital, when a military convoy was travelling along the main highway that links Baghdad with the northern provinces.
