President Barack Obama's statement on Iraq due to take place at the White House has been delayed by half an hour.
Obama is expected to speak on the current situation in the country at 6.15pm after a meeting with his national security team.
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."
