Until ten days ago the Iraqi town of Taza Kharmatho, just south of Kirkuk city, was in the hands of ISIL fighters.

But a week ago the Iraqi army and ‎Kurdish Peshmerga forces swept into the area, retaking the town.

Due to ISIL's tactic of booby trapping buildings before they flee, it now resembles a ghost town, uninhabitable for most of its former residents.
