"I learned cutting hair from my father. I left school because I was worried about the ideas and curriculum which had been adopted in education," Asi says, remembering his youth in Mosul. "If a customer came to shave his hair or beard, we would put someone on the watch because we were worried one of the Islamic State people would come and arrest us." In the camp, Asi works with his father and earns about 5,000 dinars a day ($4.29). REUTERS/Muhammad Hamed SEARCH "MOSUL VENDORS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

A Picture and Its Story: Sold by Islamic State, Yazidi child reunited with family
His name was Ayman, but the couple who brought the boy home to their Iraqi village after buying him for $500 called him Ahmed. Islamic State militants had killed or enslaved Ayman's parents in their purge of the Yazidi minority to which he belongs, then sold the four-year-old to Umm and Abu Ahmed, who are Muslims. For the 18 months he lived with the couple, his relatives assumed he was dead, one of several thousand Yazidis who have been missing since the militants overran their homes in what the United Nations has called genocide. When Iraqi forces retook east Mosul and the surrounding area last week, they found Ayman and returned him to what is left of his family. While their reunion was full of joy, breaking the bond between Ayman and his adoptive parents brought new sorrow. REUTERS/Muhammad Hamed SEARCH "YAZIDI BOY" FOR THIS STORY.

The soaring popularity of methamphetamine - a cheap and highly addictive drug ÐÊ is overburdening health services and tearing families and communities apart in Southeast Asia, driving many countries to adopt hardline policies to fight the surge in narcotics use. Around 700,000 drug users and pushers registered with authorities in a process termed "surrendering". There are few programs or facilities to help them. Local governments and private centres are trying to plug the gaps. Private rehabilitation can range from support groups led by clergy in the predominately Catholic nation, to costly treatment programs that charge hundreds of dollars a month, putting them out of reach for most Filipinos.

Rahim Khan's return to Afghanistan 28 years after fleeing to Pakistan was not the homecoming he had dreamed of. The 60-year-old is one of a growing number of Afghan refugees making the journey back with trepidation, as militant violence intensifies, yet feeling shunned by their adopted country as relations between the neighbours sour. The rate of returnees has more than quadrupled this year, with 137,000 refugees going back to Afghanistan since January. The number could spike further if the countries fail to agree by Dec. 31 to extend identity cards for two years and allow some 1.5 million registered refugees to stay in Pakistan. The chill in relations, amid an offensive by Taliban insurgents which Kabul blames partly on Pakistan, has put the extension in doubt, along with the future of another million unregistered Afghans.

Former Chinese "comfort woman" Hao Yuelian sits on her bed under pictures of babies at her house in Taiyuan, Shanxi Province, China, July 16, 2015. “Comfort women� is the Japanese euphemism for women who were forced into prostitution and sexually abused at Japanese military brothels before and during World War Two. Her adopted daughter explained that the biggest scar of her life was her lost fertility, something her family considers is related to what happened to Hao during World War Two. Losing her fertility is the biggest regret of her life so she puts up posters of babies in her room to sooth herself. According to the information from China’s Commission of Inquiry into the Facts of Comfort Women being Victims, which is based on her own statement during the commission's research, Hao was abducted by Japanese soldiers at 17 and was forced to serve as a "comfort woman" for over 20 days during World War Two.
