US-backed Syrian fighters on Monday paused their offensive for a key dam held by the Islamic State group to allow a technical team to enter the complex.

There have been fears about the integrity of the dam after fighting in the area forced it out of service on Sunday. The damage to the dam could lead to massive scale flooding across Raqa and Deir Ezzor provinces downstream to the southeast.
