Iraqi troops enter Mosul

Iraqi troops have entered the city of Mosul and face heavy resistance from the so-called Islamic State (IS), reports the BBC's Ian Pannell embedded with special forces.

He tweeted that counter-terrorism forces were facing stiff resistance from IS fighters on the outskirts of the northern city.

Government troops have been advancing on Mosul from the south.

They are part of a major offensive which began more than two weeks ago.
