A teenage girl who lost her leg while fleeing from the Iraqi city of Mosul hopes to achieve her dream of becoming a doctor.

Milad Yassi, 16, had to have her left leg amputated after being shot by a sniper from the terrorist group ISIL, also known as Daesh.

Her family was among thousands of people who, until recently, were trapped in western Mosul.
