Photo of the Day: What in the world?

Update: The correct answer to this was Iraq, where Iraqi policewomen were training at a camp in Karbala. If you got it right, without the help of the internet, pat yourselves in the back.

Thanks for participating in Tuesday’s “Photo of the Day.” quiz. If you are new to this, we’re posting a photograph from a city or village in a random country, and asking you to guess where it is — and what is going on.

Here is today’s photo: A group of women are practice shooting weapons in a training facility. Can you tell us where? Post your answers in the comments below, and we will tell you the right answer at the end of the day.
