Iraqi militants threaten entire region: US

An Iraqi Kurdish security guard frisks a man as families fleeing violence in Iraq's northern Nineveh province wait at a Kurdish checkpoint in Aski kalak, 40 kms West of Arbil, in the autonomous Kurdistan region, on June 10, 2014Jihadists who have seized Iraq’s second city of Mosul pose a threat to the entire region, the United States warned Tuesday, voicing deep concern about the “extremely serious” situation. Condemning militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) “in the strongest possible terms,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest called on Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and other leaders to do more to address “unresolved issues” to ensure they are governing “with the interests of all Iraqis in mind.” “It should be clear that ISIL is not only a threat to the stability of Iraq, but a threat to the entire region,” said State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki, in a statement. She stressed that Washington backed “a strong coordinated response to push back against this aggression.”
