Mideast Iraq
Kurdish Peshmerga security forces stand guard on the outskirts of the northern city of Mosul, Iraq, Saturday, June. 14, 2014. Fighters from the al-Qaida splinter group, drawing support from former Saddam Hussein-era figures and other disaffected Sunnis, have made dramatic gains in the Sunni heartland north of Baghdad after overrunning Iraq's second-largest city of Mosul on Tuesday. Soldiers and policemen have melted away in the face of the lightning advance, and thousands have fled to the self-rule Kurdish region in northern Iraq. (AP Photo)
