Random Pagan Verse:
When using geographic boundaries, whenever anyone of Third Degree lives more than a league from the covenstead (or are about to),
any of these may found a new coven; indeed, any Witch living within the covenstead who wishes to form a new coven will inform the elders of this
intention and immediately move to a new dwelling beyond the boundaries of known covensteads. Members of any coven may choose to join the new coven when
it is formed, but they must totally avoid their old coven if they choose this course. The elders of the old and new covens should meet in peace and love
to determine the boundaries of the covens. Any Witch living outside of any two covens may choose to join either coven, but never both. All may meet for
the Great Festivals if the elders agree, so long as they meet in peace and love. Let the elders confer as to the use of this law when it is not directly
applicable. Always be aware that the splitting of a coven breeds bad feelings (energy vortices?); this law was made chiefly for this reason. And may happier times come!

Iraqi forces have cut off the last supply route into Mosul, effectively trapping the militants of the so-called "Islamic State" (IS) group. Hundreds of thousands of civilians remained trapped in the city.

Brett McGurk, the US envoy to the anti-IS coalition said on Sunday that fighters with the Islamist group were "trapped. Just last night, the 9th Iraqi army division ... cut off the last road out of Mosul,"
"Any of the fighters who are left in Mosul, they're going to die there," McGurk said. "We are very committed to not just defeating them in Mosul, but making sure these guys cannot escape."
After "fully liberating" the city's east from IS in January, US-backed Iraqi forces moved onto western Mosul, with a renewed push in March.

Mosul's liberation is increasingly in sight albeit with increasingly difficult fighting ahead," McGurk said, adding that Iraqi forces were retaking "some of the most difficult ground that we knew would have to be reclaimed. They're doing this in a dense urban environment facing a suicidal enemy that's using civilians as shields."
