Islamic State uses hundreds of people as human shields near the Iraqi city of Mosul, engaged in an offensive initiated by U.S.-backed forces. It's the final few hours of the current Aleppo ceasfire - allowing desperate civilians to reunite with their families, despite constant rebel shelling. NATO and its EU allies are on alert, as they closely follow the Russian naval fleet making its way to the Mediterranean. And, no EU sanctions against Russia over Aleppo - but leaders remain divided, with some fearing Russia's trying to weaken the EU.
