Families of the victims killed by ISIS in the old American base COB Speicher, protest in the streets of Karbala. The crowd, of mostly women, wave pictures of their missing family members in the air, calling for the return of the bodies of those killed and the release of those who are still detained. ISIS attacked the base in May 2014, killing many of the Iraqi soldiers posted there and taking others prisoner. Since then the Kurdish Peshmerga have regained control over the area.
