A military source has told ITV News Editor Jonathan Wald that the Sunni militant group ISIS have attacked a prison in Baquba, releasing its prisoners:
Baquba is 31 miles from the Iraqi capital city Baghdad.
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."
