    Iraqi civil defence teams have started pulling bodies from the rubble in Mosul.

    Many of the dead were civilians, who rights groups and the Iraqi government say were used as human shields by fighters of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group.

    Al Jazeera's Charles Stratford reports from Hassan Sham Camp in northern Iraq.
