Plan 'under way' to rescue refugees on Iraq mountain: Cameron

Displaced Iraqi families from the Yazidi community cross the Iraqi-Syrian border in northern Iraq, on August 11, 2014 after fleeing Islamic State (IS) militantsAn international plan is under way to rescue civilians trapped by Islamic State fighters on a mountain in northern Iraq, British Prime Minister David Cameron said Wednesday. Cameron declined to give details of the operation but said Britain would play a role, just as it had worked alongside the United States in conducting humanitarian aid drops to thousands of Yazidis and other minorities who have fled to Mount Sinjar. “Clearly there is an absolutely desperate situation in Iraq, particularly on this mountainside,” Cameron said after chairing a meeting of the government’s emergency Cobra committee. “I can confirm that detailed plans are now being put in place and are underway and that Britain will play a role in delivering them.”
