A worker sanitizes a cholera treatment center at a regional hospital in Baidoa, Somalia on May 11, 2017. The Bay region of Somalia in which Baidoa is located has seen the highest number of cases of acute watery diarrhea (AWD) and cholera this year, due to the high levels of migration from drought ridden areas in southwest Somalia.

MAY 27, 2010: #adayinmyarchives An Iraqi Emergency Response Brigade (ERB) member loads his weapon as his unit prepares to serve an arrest warrant on a suspected insurgent responsible for planting IEDs, on May 27, 2010, on the outskirts of Baghdad, Iraq. Iraqi Special Forces and ERB and been training under US Special Forces for several years with a heavy focus on evidence collection and both legal and human rights for detained suspects. Members of the unit make little more than $700 a month and keep their identity a secret as many prevail from areas where insurgency is rife. US Special Forces are not permitted to accompany Iraqi ERB on missions unless an arrest warrant has been issued. Iraq faces multiple challenges in the lead-up to the drawn-down of US forces in Iraq, with many observers claiming that while they have the capablities of handling home-grown problems, they are far from being able to tackle external threats. Political wrangling has reportedly fostered greater instability throughout the country with fears of renewed sectarian violence breaking out as insurgents set-up attacks in an attempt to exploit vulnerabilities amongst the populace. #iraq#isis#isil#war#baghdad#middleeast#photooftheday#photojournalism#photojournalist#news#terrorism#sf#specialforces#specops#night#raid#mission#ak47#gettyimages#onassignment#syria#usa#weapon#soldier#soldiers
