(The Guardian) – Humanitarian workers in Iraq are warning that the response to the battle of Mosulis being hampered by lack of funding and the pressure of supporting the millions already displaced by conflict across the country. As Iraqi, US and Kurdish coalition troops approach Mosul for military action that could take place any time in the next couple of weeks, the UN Refugee Agency’s Iraq country director Bruno Geddo told the Guardian that there is not enough money to prepare adequately for the huge numbers that could flee the city, with the Mosul budget only 48 per cent funded.
