Masked Sunni Muslim gunmen take their positions with their weapons during clashes with Iraqi security forces outside the city of Falluja, 70 km (43 miles) west of Baghdad, January 21, 2014. Al Qaeda militants and their local allies seized control of Falluja and parts of Ramadi on January 1, exploiting resentment among minority Sunnis against the government for policies perceived as unfairly penalizing their once-dominant community. Sporadic fighting again flared around Falluja and Ramadi. Picture taken January 21 2014. REUTERS/Stringer (IRAQ - Tags: CIVIL UNREST POLITICS) less
