Iraqis in Erbil happy despite war with ISIL

Peshmerga army keeps capital of Kurdish region safe from armed group, allowing residents to live in relative comfort.

    In Iraq, some of the heaviest fighting between ISIL fighters and Kurdish Peshmerga forces is taking place outside Erbil, the capital of the autonomous Kurdish region.

    But people in the city itself enjoy a high degree of comfort and security, thanks to its own Peshmerga army.
