Iraqi children scavenge for a living
After fleeing from ISIL, dozens of young Iraqis spend their days searching through rubbish heaps for valuable scraps.
Standing next to a pile of rubbish as high as a hill, Ali, a 12-year-old child from Mosul, looks excitedly at his latest discovery.
"They say it's expired, but I am still eating it," he says, popping a strawberry candy into his mouth.
Like Ali, dozens of displaced Iraqi children who fled from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group are now working in a massive landfill site 15km outside Erbil, the capital of Iraq's Kurdish region. They scavenge their way through tonnes of rubbish to collect plastic and metal to sell to recycling plants, making between 10,000 and 30,000 Iraqi dinars ($9 to $27) a day.
