    In parts of Iraq, people who were forced from their homes by the war against ISIL are struggling to recover.

    The government has set up 166 polling stations in 70 camps for internally displaced persons.

    Camp residents are hopeful the government will make good on its commitments to rebuild destroyed cities and towns so that they can return home.
