In news from Iraq, at least 16 people have died after ISIS militants attacked a power station in the oil-rich city of Kirkuk. This came as U.S.-backed forces continued their assault on Mosul, which fell to the Islamic State two years ago. The United Nations has warned the attack on Mosul could force up to a million people being displaced. On Thursday, the Pentagon announced the first U.S. soldier had died in the attempt to retake Mosul.
