80 Yazidis killed, women kidnapped

16 Aug, 2014

ISIS, now being called the Islamic State, massacres 80 people who are part of the Yazidi minority in a village in the northern part of the country. A senior-level Kurdish official tells Reuters:

They arrived in vehicles and they started their killing this afternoon. We believe it’s because of their creed: convert or be killed.

It is also being reported that the women of the village have been kidnapped.
