Iraq’s PM in Mosul, congratulates Iraqi forces


Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi arrived in "the liberated city" of Mosul and congratulated the Iraqi forces and people on the achievement of the major victory," his office said.

Government forces had spent days closing in on the last area of western Mosul held by IS, after an eight-month offensive to drive the jihadist group from the city. Iraqi army forces, who cleared the eastern half of Mosul in January, had encircled fighters in a small pocket of the densely-populated Old City, reports said.
