On the day the Islamic State overran the Iraqi city of Mosul in 2014, there were some materials nearby they could have used to make a 'dirty bomb'.
Mosul: It could take many years more to fully remove explosives and other munitions from one of Iraq's most populous cities.
Earlier this week, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared that the northern Iraqi city of Mosul had been liberated from the Islamic State (IS) after a nine-month operation.
The jihadists of the Islamic State are finally being driven out of their two main bastions: The northern Iraqi city of Mosul and the eastern Syrian city of Raqqa.
Iraqi forces on Thursday captured the compound of a landmark mosque in Mosul that was blown up last week by the Islamic State group.
Why has it taken the combined militaries of the United States and Iraq backed by an international coalition more than two years to dislodge a relatively small force of militants lacking heavy weaponry?
Officials: Airstrike targeting ISIS militants in the Iraqi city of Mosul – that reportedly killed at least 100 people – was launched by the U.S. military.
The Iraqi advance into Mosul's western half slowed Saturday as combat turned to urban warfare and Iraqi forces met stiff resistance from the Islamic State group.
