This Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015 photo, shows a bridge destroyed by Islamic State militants near the Shadoukhah frontline to slow advance of Kurdish Forces in Ninevah province, northern Iraq.

An AP team traveling with the Kurds found the road to Mosul, a coveted prize in the battle for Iraq, strewn with suspicion and fear. (AP Photo/Vivian Salama)
