KIRKUK — This city has frequently been described as a 'powder keg' of racial hostility waiting to explode, but the streets of Kirkuk tell a different story.

Between the police roadblocks and frontlines that surround it, the generosity and welcoming nature of the people of Kirkuk give hope for the future of this extraordinary city.
