ISIL exploits sectarian divisions in Iraq

Influx of Sunni Arabs means security forces finding it increasingly difficult to weed out ISIL sleeper cells in Kirkuk.

    The Sunni Arab population in Kirkuk has rapidly increased in recent months, with many fleeing fighting and making the province their new home.

    The influx has made it increasingly difficult for security forces to track down those suspected of being loyal to ISIL, hiding in the community.
