Anti-ISIL carrier in Mediterranean attracts unwanted attention

The USS Harry S Truman vessel in the Mediterranean has become the launching pad for operations in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

    The USS Harry S Truman aircraft carrier is involved in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) in both Afghanistan and Iraq.

    The $45bn vessel is capable of launching multiple aircraft at a moment's notice.

    But its presence in the Mediterranean has attracted unwanted attention.

    Al Jazeera's Mohamed Moawad got a rare glimpse into how it operates.
