The fight to retake Mosul from ISIS started a month ago today. Iraqi forces have inched their way into the city — the last major city held by ISIS in Iraq — but the fighting has slowed down because there are so many civilians trapped there.

Here & Now's Robin Young checks in with Mike Giglio (@mike_giglio), Middle East correspondent for BuzzFeed News, who is back from the front lines.

This segment aired on November 14, 2016.
