Iraqi Christians under attack

The U.S. has launched airstrikes in Northern Iraq. President Obama says the strikes are meant to protect American citizens in Erbil and to aid the tens of thousands of minority refugees who are stranded on Mount Sinjar. The move comes as the Islamist group ISIS continues to capture more territory inside Iraq, including the Christian town of Qaraqosh, where hundreds have been slaughtered.
