The nine-month long battle for Mosul is almost over – and the effort to repair the enormous damage done by the ISIL occupation is beginning.
The UN says at least six districts are destroyed and repairing only basic infrastructure could cost a billion dollars.
As well as the thousands killed, around 900,000 people have fled since the offensive began last October.
Its not clear when they will be able to return home.
Iraqi government troops are clearing the last pockets of resistance from a few remaining ISIL fighters.

So, how will his government in Baghdad build on this success?
