Saving a lion in Mosul Zoo

With the Iraqi Defence Force working to recapture Mosul from so-called Islamic State, Dr Amir Khalil headed a team that travelled to Mosul Zoo to treat the animals still alive there. They performed life-saving medical treatments on Lula the bear and a lion called Simba who had been living in squalid conditions since the conflict began. The Egyptian vet works with the animal charity 'Four Paws'. (Picture credit: Safin Hamed/AFP/Getty Images.)
