IRAQ-SYRIA-CONFLICT-US-SINJAR

A picture taken on August 17, 2015 shows a general view of the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar, west of the city of Mosul. Jihadists occupying the Iraqi town of Sinjar are so close that Kurdish fighters can watch them without binoculars and battles are often fought with hand grenades. Yet the recapture of the nearby town — the ancestral hub of the Yazidi minority — remains a distant prospect. AFP PHOTO / SAFIN HAMED
