Photo of the Day

FILE - In this undated file photo posted on Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014 by the Raqqa Media Center of the Islamic State group, fighters from the Islamic State group pray at the Tabqa air base after capturing it from the Syrian government in Raqqa, Syria.  How rooted in Islam is the ideology embraced by the Islamic State group that has inspired so many to fight and die? The group has assumed the mantle of Islam's earliest years, claiming to recreate the conquests and rule of the Prophet Muhammad and his successors. But in reality its ideology is a virulent vision all its own, one that its adherents have plucked from centuries of traditions. (AP Photo/Raqqa Media Center of the Islamic State group, File)
