The reporter narrates an eight-minute clip during which he visits various points in the city, Iraq's second largest.

The video is aimed at dispelling reports that the city has been suffering from economic hardships under the thumb of ISIS.

In the video, Cantlie looks haggard and weary. Unlike in previous clips, he is shown wearing civilian clothing.
