WASHINGTON - Two US officials say that roughly 4,500 people remain atop northern Iraq's Sinjar Mountain, and nearly half are herders who lived there before the siege and have no interest in being evacuated.


The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak publicly, said a US team who spent Wednesday on the mountaintop reported numbers far smaller and circumstances less dire than feared.
