Around 100 Islamic State militants have surrendered in Syria's Raqqa in the last 24 hours and were "removed from the city", a spokesman for the U.S-led coalition against Islamic State told Reuters on Saturday.

"We still expect difficult fighting in the days ahead and will not set a time for when we think (Islamic State) will be completely defeated in Raqqa," Colonel Ryan Dillon said in an emailed statement.
