Scouts are making a symbolic comeback in Mosul after a three-year absence from the city that used to serve as Daesh's (ISIS) de facto capital in Iraq. With white shirts and neckerchiefs, more than 200 male and female scout leaders from across Iraq recently converged on the city that was devastated by three years of militant rule and nine months of heavy urban warfare.For Qassima Mohsen, a 42-year-old scout leader in the southern province of Dhi Qar, the 800-kilometer trip to Mosul had both symbolic and personal value.In the early 2000s, she used to come regularly to Mosul's scout camp for gatherings.
