A family fleeing the Mosul in northern Iraq after Islamist insurgents swamped the region have told ITV News that the city fell in "half an hour."
ITV News' International Affairs Editor Rageh Omar reports:
The Foreign Secretary has been clear on the threat of Isis, but he has ruled out the prospect of any UK military involvement in the crisis.
Iraq’s foreign minister, Hoshyar Zebari, is a natural diplomat. Polite, immaculately dressed, and blessed with a great memory.
Isis has paraded military equipment in Mosul it captured from when the Iraqi army fled in what some see as a "nightmare scenario."
