Raqqa reaps the fruit of three years under Islamic State armed group

By Filip Warwick

Now in the hands of the Syrian Democratic Forces-- part of the US-led international coalition-- the city is still experiencing the devastating death toll reaped by three years of IS control and the subsequent coalition. In this five-part series from Raqqa, Filip Warwick has this first report.
