LED IN: Displaced Iraqis from the Yazidi community arrive to the camp of Bajid Kandala at Feeshkhabour town near the Syria-Iraq border, in Iraq Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014. The displacement of at least tens of thousands of Yazidis- Kurdish speakers of an ancient Mesopotamian faith - means yet another Iraqi minority has been peeled away as extremists continue their sweep of Iraq, seizing territory they brutally administer. The Islamic State group fighters already caused the expulsion of Iraqs Christians, Shiite Muslims and adherents of the tiny Shabak faith. The hardliners see other religious groups as heretics who may be killed or forced to submit to their rule. (AP Photo/ Khalid Mohammed)
