Iraqi women, fleeing from a northern Iraqi town, help push a car after it broke down, as they cross to a secure area at a Kurdish security forces checkpoint, in the Khazer area between the Iraqi city of Mosul and the Kurdish city of Irbil, northern Iraq, on Wednesday. Sunni insurgents who seized Iraq’s second largest city attacked a nearby Christian village on Wednesday, bringing their fight closer to the largely Kurdish regions of northern Iraq which had remained so far largely untouched from the chaos sweeping the country.
