    There are fears ISIL fighters are hiding in the crowds of people escaping the Iraqi city of Mosul.

    The city is at the centre of an Iraqi military offensive to defeat the armed group.

    Security has been stepped up at the camps sheltering displaced people, but some say they are being unfairly targeted.

    Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel-Hamid reports from Hassan Sham camp, east of Mosul.
