Iraqi boys from the Shabak community clear the rubble around their house which was destroyed by Islamic State (IS) group jihadists in the village of Baz Gerkan east of Mosul on January 10, 2018.
Shabaks, who number around 60,000 in Iraq, have their own language and say they first settled in the Arab country several centuries ago from northern Iran. Their places of worship, such as those of Christians, Yazidis and other minorities, were targeted by the Islamic State group, and many fled their homes during the three years of jihadist occupation. / AFP PHOTO / AHMAD AL-RUBAYE        (Photo credit should read AHMAD AL-RUBAYE/AFP/Getty Images)
