Hundreds of men have flocked to sign up for the Iraqi army in an attempt to combat Islamist fighters who have seized parts of the country.
The men were pictured travelling in convoys of trucks in Baghdad, as ISIS fighters vowed yesterday to capture the city.
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."
