500,000 civilians in Mosul face `catastrophic' water shortages: UN


Up to 500,000 civilians in Mosul face a "catastrophic" drinking water shortage as Iraqi forces advance on the Islamic State group in the city, the United Nations warned on Wednesday.

Operations to retake Iraq`s second city have damaged water pipes in recent days and residents in east Mosul say they have resorted to pumping water from wells."We don`t have water or electricity. We are drinking well water but that`s not enough," said Mosul resident Mohamed Khalil, 25.
Iraqi commanders said around 40 percent of the eastern half of Mosul has been retaken from the jihadists since a huge offensive began on October 17.
The forces have told civilians to stay at home in order to avoid massive displacement from the city, which was believed to have a population of a million-plus before the operation started.
