After eight months of fighting Islamic State militants in the city of Mosul, Iraqi forces say they are on the verge of victory. Civilians have been fleeing in their thousands as battles with hundreds of remaining militants raged around the Old City's grand mosque, where IS had declared their caliphate in 2014. (Reuters)
