In this photo taken on Saturday, Jan. 17, 2015, an elderly Yazidi, after being released by Islamic militants, arrives in Kirkuk, 180 miles (290 kilometers) north of Baghdad, Iraq. The Islamic State group released about 200 Yazidis held for five months in Iraq, mostly elderly, infirm captives who likely slowed the extremists down, Kurdish military officials said Sunday. Almost all of the freed prisoners are in poor health and bore signs of abuse and neglect. (AP Photo)
