Women in close encounter with IS fighters

Seven Christian women hid under a bed while so-called Islamic State fighters came into the room and slept on the bed.

The ordeal lasted for three hours. One of the women told Radio 4 PM reporter Hugh Sykes: "We were all scared, I held my friend's hand and just kept praying."
