ISIS Cuts Off Phone Lines in Mosul

Militants from the Islamic State group blocked all mobile phone networks in the largest Iraqi city they control, Mosul, accusing informants in the city of tipping off coalition forces to their whereabouts, residents told The Associated Press on Thursday. Residents described a scene of “paralysis” in the city on Thursday, a day after the militants announced their decision on their Mosul-based radio network.

Businesses were at a standstill as residents tried to understand what was happening, they said. Some are still able to access the Internet, which operates under a different network.All residents spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal.
