Peshmerga forces say they are investigating a deadly attack by Yazidi fighters on the Sunni Arab town of Bu Hanaya near Rabia on the border between Iraq and Syria.

It is believed they were looking for some of the Yazidi women and girls abducted by ISIL fighters in August.

But the Peshmerga and high-ranking Yazidi soldiers say they were not informed about plans to attack the town and that the around 20 armed Yazidis who stormed the town acted alone.
