Mosul battle: Inside camp for people fleeing IS fighting

Since the Mosul offensive started, hundreds of families from areas around the Iraqi city have managed to flee the fighting with Islamic State.

The UN refugee agency (UNHCR) says the Dibaga camp, south of Irbil, has been receiving around 50 people daily, on average, with that number likely to rise as the battle goes on.

Those new arrivals face cramped conditions and long queues for aid.
