    Mosul, a northern Iraqi city, has been one area where the country's security forces are preparing to take full control, but there are two local armies patrolling the city.

    One is loyal to the Kurdish autonomous government while the other is allegiant to Baghdad.

    Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel Hamid reports on how the split has raised fears of sectarian violence in a strategic city.
