Amid the chaos and carnage of the battle for Mosul, Middle East correspondent Matt Brown came across a scene so sad he will never forget it: a little girl, dead from a head wound caused by shrapnel from a mortar that exploded near her home.
It was confusing and horrific. Amongst the chaos and carnage of the battle for Mosul, we came across a scene so sad it’s seared into my mind’s eye forever.
We were in a small tent in a refugee camp, 20 kilometres outside of Mosul.
I’d been told that ambulances ferried people here from the front lines, and wanted to gauge the impact the battle was having on civilians.
