Hundreds flee Mosul as Iraqi forces squeeze IS militants
Thousands of Mosul civilians trapped.
The United Nations has warned that the intense fighting in the Iraqi city of Mosul has put innocent lives in greater danger.
According to the UN report, supplies have run low and drinking water is scarce for the civilians held as human shields by the militants.
Meanwhile, hundreds of civilians fled Mosul's Old City as Iraqi forces slowly squeezed the last pockets of Islamic State militants.
