Scores of Iraqis have marched to the UN headquarters in Erbil, demanding action against the persecution of minorities by the Islamic State group.

The Sunni rebels last week ordered Christians in Mosul to pay a tax, convert, leave the city or face execution.

Since then, a thousand families are reported to have left.

Al Jazeera's Omar al Saleh reports from Erbil.
