Kurdish Peshmerga fighters take position with their weapons on the outskirts of Mosul January 26, 2015. Kurdish Peshmerga fighters are digging trenches and building defense berms in Wadi al-Ghorab (Valley Of The Crows), less than 2 km away from the IS-held Sultan Abdullah village, which demarcates the new border of their autonomous region. The Kurds have enjoyed de facto self rule since the first Gulf War in 1991. They are now closer than ever to achieving their dream of full independence. Yet they are menaced by the deadly ambitions of the Islamic caliphate across the frontline. Picture taken January 26, 2015. REUTERS/Azad Lashkari (IRAQ - Tags: CIVIL UNREST MILITARY CONFLICT)

EDITORS' NOTE: Reuters and other foreign media are subject to Iranian restrictions on their ability to film or take pictures in Tehran.

A general view shows a nuclear power plant (C) being rebuilt in Bushehr, about 1,215 km (755 miles) south of Tehran, November 30, 2009. Russia plans to start up Iran's first nuclear power station in March 2010 to coincide with the Iranian New Year, two sources closely involved with the project told Reuters. Russia agreed in 1995 to build the 1,000 megawatt nuclear power plant at Bushehr on the Gulf coast in south-western Iran, but delays have haunted the $1 billion project and diplomats say Moscow has used it as a lever in relations with Tehran. The power plant pictured was destroyed by an Iraqi missile strike during the Iran-Iraq war (1980-88). Picture taken on November 30, 2009. REUTERS/Vladimir Soldatkin (IRAN POLITICS ENERGY)

The sealing boat Madelinot War Lord sits idle near the location of the sunken L'Acadien II north of Cape Breton island, Nova Scotia, in this photo taken March 29, 2008. Three seal hunters died on Saturday after a fishing vessel capsized in the icy waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, marking the first accident of Canada's 2008 seal hunt season. The Madelinot Warlord rescued two crew members after their vessel capsized while under tow by the Canadian icebreaker Sir William Alexander. Three bodies were later recovered and one reported as missing. The Canadian government has ordered an investigation into the incident. REUTERS/Paul Darrow (CANADA)
