Iraq And Kurds Join Forces

Iraq’s air force is join­ing Kur­dish fight­ers to bat­tle Islamic State mil­i­tants who cap­tured a Kurd moun­tain region over the weekend.

In Iraq’s Par­lia­ment, a Kur­dish law­maker broke down in sobs on the floor as she spoke of Islamic fight­ers slaugh­ter­ing and exil­ing a minor­ity sect. She called on.the Par­lia­ment to “Do Something.”
