Humanitarian aid is being distributed to hundreds of thousands of Yazidi people, fleeing Islamic militants in Northern Iraq.

At least 80 men from the Yazidi faith were killed, and scores of women and children abducted, in the village of Kawju (also spelt Kocho) on Friday.

Reporting from a refugee camp in Dohuk, the BBC's Yalda Hakim says that the Yazidi community there is trying to come to terms with news of the massacre.
