One of the leaders of faith in the UK has said that the idea of Christianity being driven out of Iraq is a horrifying prospect.
The Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, told ITV News that what is being done to help those trapped in the mountains is simply not enough.
ITV News correspondent Paul Davies reports on the Cardinal's plea:
Kurdish Peshmerga fighters have emerged victorious in the battle for Mosul Dam, but the question is - what will their next move be?
An ITV News team at Mosul Dam was with victorious Kurdish Peshmerga fighters at the complex earlier today.
ITV News joined a Kurdish unit fighting Islamist militants near Irbil and found them using tanks from the 1950s and short on ammunition.
