The city has been under Islamic State control since the Islamist militants took over in June last year, sweeping through most of Iraq's Sunni Muslim provinces towards Baghdad. The Shi'ite-led government has promised a military offensive to retake Mosul but progress has been slow, in part because of Islamic State gains elsewhere.
