A girl runs past a Vote Leave sign, protruding from the garden of a house in AltrinchamThe "Remain" camp holds a 13-point lead over "Leave" rivals in Britain's EU referendum campaign, after winning support for the first time from a majority of men, those aged over 65 and Conservative voters, according to a poll published on Tuesday. The three voter groups of men, older people and Tory supporters had all favoured leaving the European Union when they were surveyed in March, the newspaper said, but a majority of each now backed "Remain".

Members of the Iraqi security forces load a machine gun near FallujaBy Saif Hameed BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraqi forces shelled Islamic State targets in Falluja on Tuesday, the second day of an assault to retake the militant stronghold just west of Baghdad. As the government sought to ease international concerns about the risk to civilians, residents in the city, 50 km (30 miles) west of the capital, reported sporadic shelling around the city centre, but said it was less intense than on Monday. Some 100,000 civilians are estimated to be in Falluja which, in January 2014, became the first Iraqi city to be captured by Islamic State, six months before the group declared its caliphate.
