    Displaced residents of Mosul are returning home with the help of a temporary bridge built by the Iraqi government.

    It is the only way to cross the Tigris River after all permanent bridges were destroyed in the battle to retake the city from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group.
