ISIS Militants Seize Iraq's Largest Dam

(Mosul, Iraq) -- ISIS militants are now in control of Iraq's largest dam. Residents near the dam and officials in the region told the "New York Times" that militants over-ran Kurdish security forces Thursday near the Mosul dam, which is a major supplier of water and electricity. If the dam is compromised, Mosul and surrounding villages will flood in mere hours and Baghdad could be engulfed in a 15-foot-high wall of water. ISIS has held the city of Mosul since June 10th.
