Iraq crisis: Tense times in Isis-held Mosul

26 July 2014 Last updated at 21:23 BST

Earlier this week, fighters from the Sunni extremist group Isis blew up a well-known shrine in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

Local officials say the jihadis have damaged 30 shrines in and around Mosul since they overran the area last month.

The militants have also forced minority Christians to flee the city.

Rafid Jaboori reports from Baghdad.
