3. The battle for Mosul might be over, but millions of civilians are still suffering in a massive humanitarian crisis. More here.

4. Hillary Clinton is the first losing presidential candidate in 25 years to see their favorability rating fall after the election. The only difference between Clinton and her predecessors? She’s a woman. More here.
