Clergymen in northwestern Iraq say militants with the Islamic State group have overrun a cluster of Christian villages alongside the country's semi-autonomous Kurdish region, sending civilians and Kurdish fighters fleeing from the area.

 

Bishop Joseph Tomas says the village of Qaraqoush and at least four other predominantly Christian hamlets were in the hands of the Islamic State on Thursday.
