    Two years after ISIL was evicted from Mosul, the city still struggles with electricity, water, healthcare and other basic services and reintegrating close to half a million people has been a slow bureaucratic challenge with thousands having lost identification papers and other important documents during the war.

    People in the city are saying that it will take a lot of effort to rebuild Mosul, and they will need international support, too.
