(Undated) -- Hundreds of U.S. military advisors are expected to begin their work in Iraq as early as tomorrow. Their arrival comes as Iraqi government troops appear to be slowing the advance of Sunni militants who've been closing in on Baghdad. Militants are said to control at least five cities in the north and east of the country. In addition to that, ISIS militants have reportedly seized a chemical weapons storage facility in Iraq that was once part of Saddam Hussein's arsenal.
