In Iraq, many children in a village south of Mosul formerly held by so-called Islamic State are finally going back to school for the first time in two years.
The Iraqi premier has announced the defeat of "Islamic State" (IS) after months of fighting to uproot the militant group. But European authorities have warned that its ideology still remains a threat to global security.
The Uzbek national has confessed to firing indiscriminately at a crowd of revelers at a famous nightclub in Istanbul. He claimed a Russian operative of the "Islamic State" militant group ordered him to commit the attack.
The jihadist group had suffered heavy losses in recent months and lost much of its territory in Syria. The Russian military said "not a single village" remains in IS control.
More than two years after joining the conflict, the Russian president has announced Moscow's partial departure. But he warned that "if terrorists again raise their head," Russia will deliver strikes "they haven't seen."
