Isis blows up shrine in Iraqi city of Mosul

Social media footage has emerged purporting to show the militant group Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isis) blowing up a shrine in the Iraqi city of Mosul.

The Shrine of Yunus (Tomb of Jonah) was reported to have been attacked on Thursday.

The group has seized large parts of Syria and Iraq and said it was creating an Islamic caliphate.
