The Wider Image: Displaced family returns home to Mosul
For Mohammed Saleh Ahmad and his family, returning to Mosul after more than a year away was bittersweet. He was happy to return to a semblance of his old life, but leaving behind the friends he'd made in the refugee camp where he'd lived for a year weighed on him. Ever since Mohammed fled Mosul in March 2017, this community of friends and relatives - a group of like-minded survivors of the battle for Mosul - had made life bearable. "It's so hard saying goodbye," Mohammed said, as he finished boxing up his belongings in his tent in the Hammam al-Alil refugee camp south of Mosul. Mohammed arrived when U.S.-led coalition forces began their advance on western Mosul, the final stretch to route Islamic State. The militants had overrun Mosul in 2014 and placed people like Mohammed under their draconian rule. Carrying whatever he could, he fled his home in the city, along with his wife and five children. His parents and siblings were not far behind. REUTERS/Khalid Al-Mousily SEARCH "MOSUL RETURN" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY.
