The United Nations agency for refugees is launching a major aid operation to reach more than half a million people displaced by fighting in northern Iraq. Supplies will be sent via airlift, road convoys and sea shipments through Turkey, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and Iran. A BBC correspondent at Mosul Dam says Kurdish and Iraqi forces have retaken it from Islamic State militants. IS forces have captured large parts of northern Iraq in recent weeks. The UN’s World Food Programme says it has already served up more than a million meals to displaced people in the past two weeks alone.
