Iraqi security forces have recaptured Mosul airport, a key part of the government's offensive to drive the so-called Islamic State from the western half of the city.

The operation took four hours.

IS had continued to fire mortars at the airport from further inside the city after losing the ground to the army.

Eastern Mosul was retaken last month.
