Iraq Crisis Displaces Three Million

The UN says, more than three million people have been displaced by the conflict in Iraq since the start of 2014.
A statement by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) said two-thirds were from the provinces of Anbar, Nineveh and Salahuddin.
The regions have been hardest hit by fighting between Islamic State (IS) militants and pro-government forces.
More than 276,000 people were displaced over the past two months amid fighting over Anbar's capital, Ramadi.
The city fell to the Islamic State in mid-May after the Iraqi army withdrew.
