An Iraqi carries away garbage from his house after his return to his hometown in the predominantly Christian Iraqi town of Qaraqosh (Hamdaniya), which lies some 30 kilometres east of the northern city of Mosul, on May 5, 2017.
Qaraqosh was retaken by Iraqi forces in October 2016, after it had been ravaged by Islamic State (IS) group fighters who seized it in June 2014 as they rampaged across parts of northern Iraq, capturing second city Mosul and swathes of the area known as the Nineveh Plain, home to much of the county's dwindling Christian minority. / AFP PHOTO / FADEL SENNA        (Photo credit should read FADEL SENNA/AFP/Getty Images)
