ERBIL, Iraq - Iraqi army units and Shi'ite paramilitary forces took control of a road leading west out of Mosul towards the flashpoint town of Tal Afar on Wednesday, state television reported a military official as saying.

The army's 9th Armored Division and two Shi'ite fighting forces took control of the Mosul-Kasik road, "isolating the right bank (western side of Mosul) from Tal Afar," the state TV reported in a news flash.
