Clip: 11/22/2017 | 9m 20s

Mosul may be liberated from ISIS, but the group’s brutal rule is still felt by the city’s youngest citizens.

After Mosul’s liberation, many “cubs of the Caliphate” were arrested and sent to prisons meant to “rehabilitate them.” Special correspondent Marcia Biggs reports.
