Iraq's Yazidis prepare for life in exile

Yazidi minority says the threat of IS fighters means they can't return home, as Turkey builds new camps in Kurdish Iraq.

    Turkey has provided refuge to thousands of Iraq's Yazidi community who have fled the deadly advance of Islamic State group.

    The government in Ankara says it's nearly finished constructing three new camps in Kurdish administered Iraq, but says it won't build any more on Turkish soil, as it has already spent in excess of $3.5bn for Syrian refugees.

    The Yazidi minority say they can't return home and are preparing for a life in exile.
