The Wider Image: Without papers, Uighurs fear for their future in Turkey
Without work or residency permits in Turkey and unable to renew their Chinese passports, Qurbanjan Nourmuhammed and his family live in uncertainty in Istanbul, cut off from their son who returned to Xinjiang three years ago. Nourmuhammed, his wife and five children came to Turkey in 2015, facing increased pressure from China to abandon Islamic practices such as wearing a headscarf, growing a beard and closing their restaurant for the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. China has faced growing international criticism for setting up facilities that United Nations experts describe as detention centres holding more than one million Uighurs and other Muslims. Beijing says it needs the measures to stem the threat of Islamist militancy, and calls them vocational training centres. REUTERS/Murad Sezer SEARCH "SEZER NOURMUHAMMED" FOR THIS STORY.

The Wider Image: Rohingya widows find safe haven in Bangladesh camp
Dawn hues of pink and purple reveal a dusty valley in Bangladesh's southern hills quilted with a dense settlement of red tents home to more than 230 women and children grieving for lost husbands and fathers. They are among more than 625,000 Rohingya Muslims who have fled to Bangladesh since late August, following a crackdown by the Myanmar military in response to attacks on security forces by Rohingya militants. Most Rohingya are stateless and seen as illegal immigrants by Buddhist-majority Myanmar. The United Nations and United States have described the military's actions as ethnic cleansing, and rights groups have accused the security forces of atrocities, including mass rape, arson and killings. Myanmar's government has denied most of the claims, and the army has said its own probe found no evidence of wrongdoing by troops. There are 50 tents and no men in the camp for widows and orphans, the biggest of three sites built with donor funds from Muslim-majority Pakistan in the refugee settlement of Balukhali not far from Bangladesh's resort town of Cox's Bazar. Two makeshift kitchens provide space for cooking in small holes in the ground, a new well is being dug to supplement a water pump, and a big tent serves for prayers.

The Wider Image: Bullets and Burns: Injured Rohingya Refugees
Since the ethnic violence erupted in late August, thousands of Rohingya have crossed the border each week, often travelling for days and even weeks, trekking through forests and over mountains, with many making a hazardous river or sea crossing on the last leg of their flight to fellow-Muslim Bangladesh. Bangladeshi hospitals and international aid agencies are struggling to provide medical care for all the refugees, many of whom have suffered horrific injuries and psychological trauma. More than 600,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh since Myanmar's military launched what it described as "clearance operations" following a series of attacks by Rohingya militants on security posts in Rakhine state in late August. At the camps in Bangladesh, other Rohingya victims of the violence recounted the horrors they had lived through. REUTERS/Jorge Silva SEARCH "ROHINGYA INJURIES" FOR THIS STORY.

The Wider Image: Kashmir's stone-pelters face off against pellet guns
Security forces using shotguns to disperse crowds of stone-throwing young people in the Indian-ruled region of Himalayan Kashmir have killed more than 100 people, blinding hundreds and maiming thousands over the past year. The protests have unleashed a political crisis in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, governed for the first time by a regional party in coalition with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party, which draws support from India's Hindu majority. The clashes, sparked by the July 8, 2016 killing by security forces of separatist militant Burhan Wani, have recently spread to college campuses and schools. They are drawing a new generation into a decades-old struggle for 'azaadi', or independence, for India's only Muslim-majority region, which is also claimed by neighbouring Pakistan.

The Wider Image: Trump: views from the Middle East
U.S. President Donald Trump will visit Saudi Arabia and Israel, two bastions of relative calm in the war-battered Middle East, when he begins his first foreign trip this weekend. In much of the region, authoritarian governments duel for power with political Islamists and militants as rival creeds and ethnic groups vie for dominance. Yemen, Syria, Libya and Iraq are riven by wars. Israel and the Palestinians are still locked in their decades-old struggle, while Bahrain rumbles with unrest. All 50 Muslim states whose leaders Trump will meet in the Saudi capital Riyadh are menaced by the rise of Islamic State, also known as ISIS or Daesh. He has promised to rid the world of the scourge of "radical Islamic terrorism". Attitudes towards Trump are coloured by the actions of his first four months in power. Among them: his attempt to ban citizens of six mostly-Muslim countries from travelling to the United States; his decision to launch cruise missiles against a Syrian airbase to punish Damascus for a chemical weapons attack; and his decision to arm Kurdish militias fighting IS in Syria. In short interviews, residents of the Middle East from all walks of life tell Reuters what they expect of Trump. REUTERS/ SEARCH "MIDDLE EAST TRUMP" FOR THIS STORY.

Inside, are tattered curtains, crumbling wall plaster and torn up floors. Outside is a near ghost town. This is western Mosul, in normal times a place of narrow winding streets and small shops the likes of which can be found from Marrakesh to Cairo to Beirut. That's if it wasn't for the gun shots fired by Iraqi policemen targeting Islamic State fighters a few hundreds metres away. Government forces have evicted the Sunni Muslim militants from much of the city, Iraq's second largest, but not here in the west.

The Wider Image: Iraqi Christians return to Qaraqosh with fear and hope
With Islamic State expelled, Iraqi Christians are trickling back to the ransacked town of Qaraqosh, beset by anxiety for their security and yet hopeful they can live in friendship with Muslims of all persuasions. The town, about 20 km (12 miles) from the battlefront with Islamic State in the northern city of Mosul, shows why Christians have mixed feelings about the future of their ancient community. In the desecrated churches of Qaraqosh, Christians are busy removing graffiti daubed by the Sunni Muslim militants during two and a half years of control - only for new slogans to have appeared, scrawled by Shi'ite members of the Iraqi forces fighting street to street with the jihadists in Mosul. But nearby a shopkeeper is doing a brisk trade selling Dutch beer, Greek ouzo and several whisky brands to Christians, Sunnis, Shi'ites and Kurds alike, with this kind of commerce perhaps offering a glimpse of how Iraq's fractured communities could again live together peacefully.

Duhok, Iraq
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.
