Mosul civilians run for their lives
The fighting in Mosul is dragging on, with nearly 200,000 people trapped as Iraqi forces move towards the Old City.
Meanwhile, Iraq's government-aligned Popular Mobilisation Forces - dominated by Iran-backed Shia armed groups - have taken more areas from ISIL on the border with Syria.
Capturing the town of Al-Baaj brings them closer to their goal of controlling areas near the Iraqi-Syrian border so they can cut off ISIL supply routes.
