Amerikanske fly bomber ISIS-styrker som har omringet yazidi-minoriteten i Sinjar-fjellene i Nord-Irak, opplyser kurdiske kilder.

American military forces bombed at least two targets in northern Iraq on Thursday night to rout Islamist insurgents who have trapped tens of thousands of religious minorities in Kurdish areas, Kurdish officials said.

Word of the bombings, reported on Kurdish television from the city of Erbil, came as President Obama was preparing to make a statement in Washington.

Kurdiske kilder sa amerikanerne bombet byene Gwer og Mahmour. Men Pentagons pressesekretær sa i en twittermelding at nyhetene ikke medførte riktighet.
