In this Thursday Jan. 29, 2015 photo, a Kurdish peshmerga fighter fires a weapon towards positions of the Islamic State group who are 500 meters or half a mile away, overlooking the strategic town of Sinjar, northern Iraq. Peshmerga fighters representing the lawful authorities of Iraqi Kurdistan fume against what they see as the recklessness of their allies in militias drawn from neighboring Syria and Turkey making progress painful and raising doubts about whether these groups can work together. At stake is ownership of Sinjar, the town that once was home to many of Iraq’s Yazidi religious minority. (AP Photo/Bram Janssen)SINJAR, Iraq (AP) — Kurdish forces in recent weeks have retaken parts of the strategic Iraqi town of Sinjar, whose Yazidi population was driven out in a humanitarian disaster last year that triggered U.S. intervention. But sniping among Kurdish factions makes the hold on the town seem shaky and is threatening the wider fight against Islamic state militants.

A pumpjack brings oil to the surface in the Monterey ShaleBy Barani Krishnan NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil prices rocketed more than 8 percent higher on Friday, their biggest one-day gain in two and a half years, after data showed U.S. drillers were slamming the brakes on the shale drilling boom. In a rally that may spur speculation that a seven-month price collapse has ended, global benchmark Brent crude shot up to more than $53 per barrel, its highest in more than three weeks, after Baker Hughes data showed the number of rigs drilling for oil in the United States fell by 94 - or 7 percent - this week. Two weeks of relatively stable oil prices have helped shift sentiment after months of decline, setting the stage for the violent rebound on Friday afternoon. With drillers having idled about 24 percent of their oil drilling rigs since the summer, some traders may be betting that an anticipated slowdown in U.S. oil production is nearer than expected.
