Iraqi forces make steady advance on Mosul's Grand Mosque - police

MOSUL, Iraq (Reuters) - Iraqi government forces were moving steadily towards Mosul’s Grand Mosque on Wednesday after taking control of the bridge leading to the Islamic State-held Old City, police said.

“Our troops are making a steady advance towards the Grand Mosque and we are now less than 800 meters from the mosque,” a federal police spokesman said.
