The airport in the strategically important northern Iraqi town of Tal Afar has fallen to militants, according to the AFP news agency.
The town lies near the Syrian border to the west of Mosul, which was among the first towns overrun by Isis forces,
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."
