If confirmed, reports of the murder of hundreds of Yazidis are a further sign of ISIL's utter depravity.
Minister for the Middle East Tobias Ellwood said:
The reports of the murder of hundreds of Yazidis are shocking. If confirmed, they are yet another a sign of ISIL’s utter depravity. We will continue to stand with the Government of Iraq as it works for the defeat of ISIL, and continue to support the creation of an Iraq safe for all its communities.
