'Mosul Brigades' vows to resist Islamic State

Destruction of shrines by Sunni rebels in Iraq's second city triggers the formation of a resistance group.

    Support for the Islamic State group appears to be waning in the Iraqi city of Mosul after several religious shrines were destroyed.

    Nearly two months after Sunni rebels took over Iraq's second city, the destruction of national icons and mosques have birthed a resistance group in northern Iraq.

    The group, which calls itself the Mosul Brigades, has claimed to have already killed seven Islamic State fighters.
