UN moves against Iraq Islamists amid reports of massacre

Iraqi Kurdish Peshmerga fighters take position on the front line in Khazer, near the Kurdish checkpoint of Aski kalak, Iraq on August 14, 2014The UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution aimed at weakening Islamists in Iraq amid reports of Islamic State jihadists killing dozens of residents in besieged ethnic Yazidi areas. US President Barack Obama said a first week of air strikes had broken the siege of the northern Sinjar mountain where civilians had been hiding from jihadists for more than 10 days. The US carried out more air strikes on Friday, the military said, after receiving reports that Islamic State “terrorists were attacking civilians” in the area. As aid groups tried to cope with the hundreds of thousands of people displaced by Islamist advances in northern Iraq, ingredients of a fight-back began falling into place.
