Mosul Neighborhoods in Tatters as Iraqi Army Battles Forward

As Iraqi forces slowly push into Mosul, soldiers say this battle is unlike most they have fought against Islamic State, because of the large numbers of civilians in danger of being caught in the crossfire. With the near constant sound of fighting, the residents who remain say that besides the danger of being wounded or killed, their lives are now so primitive, they feel they are living like cave men. VOA's Heather Murdock reports from Mosul.
