Government forces in Iraq have continued their large-scale push towards Mosul storming a Christian region seized by ISIL in 2014.
Units entered the town of Qaraqosh lying about 30 kilometres from the northern city, commanders said.
Further south, US soldiers at Iraq's Qayyara airfield, the main hub supporting the offensive, were forced to wear
masks against toxic plumes from a nearby sulphur plant set ablaze in the fighting.
