Iraq refugees tell of life under ISIL

Iraqis tell of their experiences in the "caliphate" after fleeing to the relative safety of Kirkuk.

    Kirkuk is on the frontlines of Iraq - but it is also a destination for Iraqis fleeing ISIL.

    Thousands have arrived in the city from ISIL-controlled Mosul.

    Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr, in Kirkuk, talks to some of those who fled ISIL territory.
