Saif Ali Abdullah, 19, from Mosul's al-Shaimaa district, who fled the Islamic State stronghold of Mosul with his family, poses for a photograph at the supermarket where he works in Khazer camp, east of Mosul, Iraq, February 8, 2017. "During the recent battles between the Iraqi forces and Islamic State, I was shot in the head but divine care helped me and one of our neighbours who worked as a rescue worker in the civil defence also helped until we managed to get out with the help of the army." Abdullah completed his treatment in the camp. After recovering his health, he found work in one of the camp's supermarket. He is paid "about 4,000 dinars ($3.4) a day". Before Islamic State entered Mosul in 2014, he was a high-school student. REUTERS/Muhammad Hamed SEARCH "MOSUL VENDORS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
