The northern Iraq city of Mosul sits astride the Tigris River on the main road south to the Sunni heartland and the capital, Baghdad. As a result, it is considered a key prize in the Iraq war and an intense struggle to control the streets is under way. Philip Reeves is embedded with U.S. forces in Mosul.
