Obama: Militants’ Siege On Iraq Mountain Broken

EDGARTOWN, Mass. (August 14, 2014) The U.S. has broken Islamic militants' siege on Iraq's Sinjar Mountain, but airstrikes will continue, President Barack Obama said Thursday.

Speaking Thursday at Martha's Vineyard, Mr. Obama said U.S. operations helped thousands of civilians flee down the mountain, and that it's unlikely that more airdrops of food and water will be needed.

The Islamic State group's advance in Iraq has driven thousands of people from their homes.
