Islamist Advance in Iraqi Kurdistan Sparks New Humanitarian

Hosted by

The jihadist Islamic State that now controls much of Iraq has trapped at least 40,000 members of the Yazidi sect—one of that country’s oldest minorities. Men, women and children have taken refuge on Mount Sinjar, where they face slaughter if they go down and dehydration if they stay where they are. That’s according to Martin Chulov, reporting from Beirut, Lebanon for Britain’s Guardian newspaper.
