Members of the Kurdish security forces take part in an intensive security deployment in the outskirts of Kirkuk June 16, 2014. Sunni Muslim militants attacked a northern Iraqi village inhabited by Shi'ite ethnic Turkmens but were repelled, police said on Tuesday, highlighting an upsurge of sectarian violence after stunning advances by jihadi fighters. The militants were beaten back from the village of Basheer, 15 km (9 miles) south of the city of Kirkuk after an hour of clashes with local militia and police forces. Picture taken June 16, 2014.
