Many Yazidi Kurds continued to suffer as they made the journey through the Sinjar Mountains on August 14. It came as the US and UK governments announced they would pull back from planned rescue efforts, saying reports of 150,000 Yazidis trapped was overestimated. Instead they believed there may be 4500 or so trapped. Some commentators argue there are still significant numbers trapped. The UN has declared their plight a “humanitarian disaster”.
