Two photos from Iraq have been chosen to be among AFP Pictures Of The Year 2017.
The first picture, taken by Ahmed Al-Rubaye, shows an Iraqi mother, carrying her baby near the destroyed al-Nuri Mosque in the Old City of Mosul.
She was trying to flee the city on 5 July during the battle of retaking the city from ISIS.
The second image, taken by Ans Messinis, shows Iraqi children sitting amid the rubble in front of a large panel of ISIS logo on 12th June in Mosul's Naples neighborhood.
This comes as Iraqi security forces had fully recaptured Nineveh governorate which was considered to be ISIS' main stronghold in Iraq and is currently sweeping Iraq to oust ISIS remnants from them.
