Peshmerga Regroup to Re-take Iraqi Town from IS

U.S. Defense Department officials say an American Navy SEAL has been killed by enemy fire during an Islamic State attack on a Kurdish Peshmerga position in northern Iraq. Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook said the service member was "advising and assisting Peshmerga forces" north of the city of Mosul when they came under attack. VOA’s Kawa Omar spoke with some of the Peshmerga fighters as they re-grouped after the assault. Robert Raffaele narrates his report.
