Licensed to London News Pictures. 20/10/2016. Oil burns in the garden of a home next to several burning wells in a residential neighbourhood in the town of Qayyarah, Iraq. The wells, part of a large oil field that surrounds the town, were set alight by retreating Islamic State militants as part of a scorched earth policy.
Since being retaken from the Islamic State the town of Qayyarah has become an important staging post for the Iraqi Army, and some US support elements, in the buildup to the Mosul offensive. Photo credit: Matt Cetti-Roberts/LNP
