A family waits on the Bzebiz Bridge as they try to flee Iraq's Anbar province, where the militant group ISIS has made recent gains. The family has been displaced five times in the past year and half, failing to find safe areas away from ISIS.
A sandstorm engulfs Bzebiz Bridge on Friday, May 22. Iraqi authorities closed the bridge, which is the only safe passage from Anbar province to Baghdad province. Officials did not give CNN a clear reason why the bridge was closed.
People wait to cross the Bzebiz Bridge on Friday. "Where are we supposed to go?" one woman asked.
People fleeing ISIS left with nothing but the clothes they were wearing.
