People evacuated from Mosul, IraqDownload
Licensed to London News Pictures. 10/11/2016. Mosul, Iraq. A young Iraqi woman, wearing a niqab looks from a bus window as she and other families, escaping from areas within the city where fighting between Iraqi Security Forces and Islamic State militants is taking place, wait to be evacuated by the Iraqi Army from the city's Gogjali District.
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.
