In this photo taken on Friday Nov. 18, 2016, Iraqi families, who fled the fighting between Iraqi forces and Islamic State militants, cook next to a trench created by Kurdish forces to demarcate their border, as they wait to cross to the Kurdish areas, in the Nineveh plain, northeast of Mosul, Iraq. The sand berms and trenches snake across northern Iraq all the way to Syria, alongside newly paved roads and sprawling checkpoints decked with Kurdish flags, in what increasingly resembles an international border. The boundary takes in lands claimed by the Kurds and the Baghdad government, and could ignite a new conflict once the Islamic State group is defeated. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla) less
