 (EDITORS NOTE: Image shot in black and white using a panoramic app on an iPhone 6.) A machine used to dig ISIL tunnels is seen at the Iraqi Army Armoured Ninth Division base on November 13, 2016 in Qaraqosh, Iraq. ISIL took control of Mosul, Iraq's second largest city in June of 2014. For the past two years they have occupied the city. On the 17th of October 2016. Iraqi forces began the Mosul offensive to take back the city. The offensive was a joint effort by Iraqi Government forces, the Peshmerga, local tribal militias and air support from the US and UK military. Despite early progress the offensive has slowed in the past week as Iraqi forces encountered heavy resistance from ISIL fighters entrenched inside the city. The use of an extensive tunnel system under the city built by ISIL over the past two years, booby traps, snipers and roads riddled with IED's has slowed the advance of troops on the ground. As the offensive enters its fourth week, fears of a humanitarian crisis grow as up to 1 million civilians are believed to be trapped inside the city.  (Photo by Chris McGrath/Getty Images)

epa05593700 A handout picture provided by Wildlife Photographer of the Year. Snapper party, Tony Wu, US  Winner, underwater category For several days each month, thousands of two spot red snappers gather to spawn around Palau in the western Pacific Ocean. The action is intense as the fish fill the water with sperm and eggs, and predators arrive to take advantage of the bounty. Noticing that the spawning ran ‘like a chain reaction up and down the mass of fish’, Wu positioned himself so that the action came to him. On this occasion, with perfect anticipation, he managed to capture a dynamic arc of spawning fish amid clouds of eggs in the oblique morning light.
