Europe stepped up support Tuesday for thousands of people fleeing advancing Islamic militant forces in northern Iraq, pledging more air drops, aid money and non-lethal equipment to ease suffering and bolster fighters battling the Sunni insurgency. Britain and France dropped water, food and solar lamps to afflicted Yazidis sheltering on Mount Sinjar amid fears of a massive humanitarian catastrophe. Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen reiterated Germany's reluctance to provide arms, saying it went against the government's principles to send weapons into war zones, but indicated that this position might be revisited.
