Licensed to London News Pictures. 10/11/2016. Mosul, Iraq. Iraqi men, holding bags containing their possessions, wait in line as the prepare to board a bus that will evacuate them from Mosul's Gogjali District. The bus, provided by the Iraqi Army, will take them away from the fighting in the city to the safety of a refugee camp in Iraqi-Kurdistan.
The battle to retake Mosul, which fell June 2014, started on the 16th of October 2016 with Iraqi Security Forces eventually reaching the city on the 1st of November. Since then elements of the Iraq Army and Police have succeeded in pushing into the city and retaking several neighbourhoods allowing civilians living there to be evacuated - though many more remain trapped within Mosul.
