Up to 30 thousand people are still facing a "potential genocide" on a mountain in northern Iraq, the UN warned as the country's premier designate gained widespread support from countries hoping political reconciliation would help undercut jihadists.

Thousands of members of minority groups, including Yazidis and Christians, faced a major threat from militants of the Islamic State jihadist group and a worsening humanitarian situation.

The US military conducted a sixth airdrop of a total of 108 bundles of food and water for thousands of Iraqis on Mount Sinjar.

To date, in coordination with the government of Iraq, US military aircraft have delivered nearly 100 thousand meals and more than 27 thousand gallons of fresh drinking water.
