Civilians are pictured as they flee the violence in the city of Ramadi, Iraq on 16 January 2016. Contrary to initial estimates in the hundreds, commanders say their forces have so far extricated about 3,800 civilians from Ramadi, a city of hundreds of thousands of residents largely evacuated after the Islamic State seized control in May.
