Footage has emerged on YouTube of Kurdish Peshmerga forces engaging with ISIS militants near the northern Iraq city of Kirkuk.
The clip has surfaced as a Kurdish spokesman claims that the key oil-producing city has "fallen into the hands of peshmerga" after elements of the Iraq army fled the area.
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."
