Displaced people from the minority Yazidi sect, fleeing violence from forces loyal to ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) in Sinjar town ride in the trunk of a car as they make their way toward the Syrian border on the outskirts of Mount Sinjar mountain, near the Syrian border town of Elierbeh in Al-Hasakah Governorate on Aug. 10, 2014. ISIL militants have killed at least 500 members of Iraq's Yazidi ethnic minority during their offensive in the north, Iraq's human rights minister told Reuters on Sunday. ISIL (sometimes known as ISIS), which has declared a caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria, has prompted tens of thousands of Yazidis and Christians to flee for their lives during their push to within a 30-minute drive of the Kurdish regional capital of Irbil.
