An Iraqi woman pushes a tricycle as government forces evacuate hundreds of Iraqis from the town of Heet in Iraq's Anbar province, to a safe area far from the battlefields where Iraqi troops are trying to retake the western town from the Islamic State (IS) group on April 4, 2016. Earlier in the week Iraqi security forces recaptured parts of Heet, which was one of the largest population centres in Anbar province still held by the Islamic State (IS) group, but other areas remain under jihadist control.
