Europe stepped up support Tuesday for thousands of people fleeing Islamic militant forces in northern Iraq, pledging helicopters, more air drops, money and equipment to ease suffering and bolster fighters battling the Sunni insurgents.


Britain promised to send a small number of Chinook helicopters to the region to use for humanitarian relief options. Prime Minister David Cameron's Downing Street office also said it was taking up urgent planning with the United States and Kurdish leaders on getting those trapped on Mount Sinjar to safety.
