Iraq minorities take up arms against ISIL

Ethnic groups are preparing to defend their communities under the threat of advancing ISIL fighters.

Several minority ethnic groups in Iraq have taken up arms in efforts to defend their towns from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), which is continuing to seize more territory in the country.

They say they have lost confidence in the Iraqi army and its ability to protect their communities.
