A military statement said Iraqi army units entered the center of Qaraqosh, about 20 kms (13 miles) southeast of Mosul, and were carrying out mop-up operations across the town which was emptied of its population in 2014, when Islamic State swept through the region.Iraqi special units earlier this week captured Bartella, a Christian village north of Qaraqosh.The offensive on Mosul is expected to become the biggest battle fought in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003

By Dan Levine and Mica Rosenberg If Donald Trump were to challenge the outcome of next month's presidential election, as he has hinted he might, he would face a difficult and expensive fight, according to election attorneys and a review of voting laws in key battleground states.Trump has said he is worried the Nov. 8 election might be rigged in favour of his opponent, Hillary Clinton, and in Wednesday's debate he refused to say he would accept the outcome.But before any court challenge, Trump probably would have to ask for a recount, said Donald Brey, a Republican election lawyer in Ohio. If the campaign did not pursue out-of-court options first, he said, a judge likely would dismiss the case.Recount rules vary from state to state.
