More than 200,000 members of the Yazidi minority group have fled violence in areas of Iraq controlled by the Isalmic State (ISIS) armed group. Thousands of families fled to Sinjar Mountain to escape the violence, where they became trapped without access to food or water. Some managed to escape; others did not. "We had nothing. We were dying of thirst, hunger. There was nothing there," says one man. "We have been walking for 12 days. Many people died. We feel distraught. Some 6,000, almost 4,000 of whom are children, are now sheltering in a newly established refugee camp in the Syrian Arab Republic.
