Details are emerging of the human toll caused by the fight for the Iraqi city of Mosul, with reports that babies just two months old have sustained bullet and blast wounds.

The World Health Organization (WHO) says that since Iraqi armed forces began their assault on the ISIL terrorist stronghold five weeks ago, medical staff have treated 1,200 civilians, including women, children and infants.

Daniel Johnson has more from Geneva.
