The UN food agency, WFP, says it is "extremely concerned" about the welfare of more than half a million people trapped in western Mosul in Iraq.

Iraqi forces and their allies are fighting to liberate the area from the extremist group ISIL, also known as Daesh.

The agency is calling on all parties to facilitate safe access to all those in need.
