'15 minutes from Mosul' tells the stories of people who've escaped a life of violence under the so called Islamic State terrorist group in Northern Iraq, in the time it takes to travel from IS-controlled Mosul to the safety of the refugee camps. Mosul has been sealed off from the outside world for more than two years, and in this podcast 5 live presenter Anna Foster hears for the first time from men, women and children who only days earlier were trapped inside the city. The podcast follows the journey of new arrivals inside the refugee camps, as well as taking listeners into the bombed shell of a former IS stronghold village where many of the inhabitants have returned to try and make a new life for themselves in the ruins.
