Mosul Iraq battle: Shia militias aim to take Tal Afar

 Iraq's Shia militia groups say they have launched an attack against "Islamic State" "militants" west of Mosul, as the offensive to retake the city continues.


The Hashid Shaabi groups say their aim is to oust IS from the town of Tal Afar, cutting jihadist supply routes to Mosul from Syria.

Tal Afar had a Shia majority before IS overran it in 2014. Mosul is a Sunni city, and the Shia militias have pledged not to enter it.
