The Telegraph’s senior foreign correspondent was filming as he ran through the last Isil battleground, just 200m from the frontline. His group had been spotted by an Isil sniper as they made their way through the Baghuz camp in Syria.
Roland Oliphant was getting some of the first footage of the final Isil settlement. Isil fighters and their families shared colourful tents packed together, now deserted as the battle struggles to a close.
