The UN has called for action to prevent what it says may be a possible massacre in the northern Iraqi town of Amerli.

Special representative Nickolay Mladenov says he is "seriously alarmed" by reports regarding the conditions in which the town's residents live.

Amerli, under siege by Islamic State for two months, has no electricity or drinking water, and is running out of food and medical supplies.

IS has seized large swathes of Iraq and Syria in recent months.
