An Iraqi couple watches a merry-go-round after breaking the fast during the holy month of Ramadan in Mosul on May 24, 2018. The Islamist State (IS) group which controlled the city for three years before its ouster last July had banned the drumming, along with other traditions that make up the festive spirit of the month of dawn-to-dusk fasting. / AFP / Zaid AL-OBEIDI
