Oil fires started by IS outside Mosul turn sheep black

As militants from so-called Islamic State retreated to Mosul from the northern Iraqi town of Qayyarah in August, they set oil wells on fire. The fires have blighted the town, polluting the air and turning local sheep black.

BBC Persian’s Nafiseh Kohnavard spoke to residents, who say their health has been affected.
