Kerry Calls Islamist Militant Campaign "Genocide"
Aug. 08, 2014
(Kabul) -- Secretary of State John Kerry says a campaign by Islamist militants in Iraq shows all the warning signs of genocide. Kerry made the remark today while visiting the Afghan capital of Kabul. Yesterday, President Obama authorized U.S. airstrikes to stop the onslaught of militants in northern Iraq. He also ordered airdrops of relief supplies to help tens of thousands of refugees who are trapped on a mountain after fleeing the militants.
