The U.N. estimates around 40,000 homes will need to be rebuilt or restored in Mosul, which faces the longest path to rebuilding of all the Iraqi cities freed from the Islamic State group.

In this Nov. 18, 2017 photo, a construction worker walks amid a cloud of dust as a bulldozer remove debris from destroyed shops in the Old City of Mosul, Iraq. The cost to rebuild after driving out the Islamic State group will be enormous. Baghdad estimates $100 billion is needed nationwide _ while local leaders in Mosul, the group’s largest urban stronghold, say that same amount is what’s needed in their city alone.
