Human rights groups are examining claims of genocide by the self-proclaimed jihadist Islamic State (ISIL) group against the Yazidi religious minority in Iraq.

Survivors of the IS violence say hundreds of Yazidi men were rounded up and shot dead by fighters near Sinjar.

Thousands of Yazidis in the Kurdish region of Iraq remain stranded with nowhere to go.
