Residents cross a street next to damaged buildings in the Old City of Mosul, Iraq, on Thursday, Nov. 8, 2018. More than a year after the brutal fighting that liberated the city ended, and a devastating air campaign that mostly flattened it, much of Mosul lies in ruins. Few residents have returned and there is little commercial activity other than the destruction of devastated buildings and scavenging for metal. Photographer: Victor J. Blue/Bloomberg via Getty Images
