Britain to deploy Chinook helicopters to help Iraq aid mission
Britain will send Chinook helicopters to help refugees trapped in northern Iraq, particularly on Mount Sinjar, the government said on Tuesday.

 

"As part of our efforts to alleviate humanitarian suffering in Iraq, we are sending a small number of Chinook helicopters to the region for use if we decide we need further humanitarian relief options," a spokesman from Prime Minister David Cameron's office said following a meeting of the government's emergency response committee.
