The UN Security Council has condemned attacks in Iraq by Islamist militants who have overrun two major cities, Mosul and Tikrit.

The UN also said the humanitarian situation around Mosul, where up to 500,000 people have fled, was "dire and is worsening by the moment".

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki vowed to fight back against the Islamic State of Iraq and the insurgents.

He also said he would punish troops who fled offering little or no resistance.
