Thousands of Yazidi refugees flee ISIS forces

 

In Peshkhabour, on the Iraq-Syria border, an exodus is taking place. Walking through the arid heat and the desert dust are the Yazidi, who have escaped from Mount Sinjar and the forces of Islamic State.

Kurdish Peshmerga fighters have helped guide these refugees toward a secure pontoon bridge and back into safer areas of northern Iraq.
