Video: Booby Traps Leave Town Deserted

From Al Jazeera. Any opinions expressed are those of the authors, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Iraq Business News.

Until ten days ago the Iraqi town of Taza Khormatho [Tuz Khormato,Tuz Khurmatu], just south of Kirkuk city, was in the hands of ISIL fighters.

But a week ago the Iraqi army and ‎Kurdish Peshmerga forces swept into the area, retaking the town.

Due to ISIL's tactic of booby trapping buildings before they flee, it now resembles a ghost town, uninhabitable for most of its former residents.
