Iraqi forces recapture government buildings in Mosul

Iraqi government forces fighting to drive ISIS from western Mosul on Tuesday recaptured the main government building, the central bank branch and the museum where three years ago the militants had smashed statues and artifacts.

An elite Rapid Response team stormed the Nineveh governorate building and government complex in an overnight raid, spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Abdel Amir al-Mohammadawi said.

They also seized a building that housed ISIS's main court of justice, Reuters reported.
