    The last few fighters of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) hiding in western Mosul are being hunted by Iraqi government forces.

    The push comes after a prolonged offensive that eviscerated the armed group's last stronghold in the country and forced about one million Iraqis to flee Mosul.

     And some families are returning home after living in refugee camps for months. But many have no homes to return to and fear it could take months to clear large areas of unexploded bombs.
