Analyst: Mosul Will Be Taken, But What Then?


About 30,000 government troops and about 4,000 Kurdish Peshmerga fighters are participating in an offensive to retake Iraq's second-largest city, Mosul, from Islamic State. The U.S. military is helping the mission by providing training, advice and air support. Analysts as well as politicians express no doubt Mosul will be recaptured, but as Zlatica Hoke reports, some fear for the future of the city in a country riddled with sectarian divisions.
