Regional government faces security challenge as rebel advances have pushed up to 1.2 million people into Kurdistan.

The Kurdish-controlled region in northern Iraq is struggling to cope with a huge influx of displaced after advances by fighters from the Islamic State group. Up to 1.2 million people have moved into the area in recent weeks.
