An international plan to rescue thousands of people trapped on a mountainside finally looks to be underway. More than a week after tens of thousands fled to hills to escape islamist militants, there are reports that American special forces have landed on the mountain to pave the way for the operation.
ITV News Washington correspondent Robert Moore reports on what we know about the rescue mission:
Kurdish Peshmerga fighters have emerged victorious in the battle for Mosul Dam, but the question is - what will their next move be?
An ITV News team at Mosul Dam was with victorious Kurdish Peshmerga fighters at the complex earlier today.
ITV News joined a Kurdish unit fighting Islamist militants near Irbil and found them using tanks from the 1950s and short on ammunition.
