Kurdish peshmerga fighters flash the sign for victory as they sit in the back of a vehicle heading to the front line of fighting with Islamic State militants at Mosul Dam on the outskirts of the northern city of Mosul on August 18, 2014. Kurdish fighters, backed by Iraqi forces and a new wave of US strikes recaptured the major dam which was the biggest prize yet clawed back from the so-called "Islamic State" since it launched a major offensive in northern Iraq in June, sweeping aside Iraqi security forces.
