The United Nations Security Council has condemned attacks by Iraqi jihadists , after hundreds of thousands of people from minority groups fled from militants.

The Islamic State group has seized Qaraqosh, Iraq's biggest Christian town, prompting residents to flee.

Many members of the Yazadi minority have also left their homes, some taking refuge in nearby mountains.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he was "deeply appalled".

UK ambassador to the UN said after last evening's meeting, the members of the Security Council call on the international community to support the government and people of Iraq and to do all it can to help alleviate the suffering of the population affected by the current conflict in Iraq,"
