VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

AS SUNNI MILITANTS CONTINUE THEIR OFFENSIVE AGAINST THE IRAQI GOVERNEMENT

THOUSANDS OF IRAQIS ARE SEEKING REFUGE.

ADNAM MOHAMMED JAMEL AND HIS FAMILY ARE AMONG THEM.

THE 74-YEAR OLD CARPENTER AND HIS WIFE AND FOUR CHILDREN ARRIVED AT A REFUGEE CAMP BETWEEN MOSUL AND ERBIL ..

(Nats of refugee)

HE SAYS THEY'VE BEEN AT THE CAMP FOR SEVEN DAYS.

THEY FLED OUT OF FEAR FROM THE BOMBINGS OF THE IRAQI GOVERNMENT AND WALKED FOR 16 HOURS TO REACH ANOTHER VILLAGE - FROM THERE THEY MOVED ON TO THE KHAZER CHECKPOINT.

MATTRESSES AND COOKING GEAR ARE BEING HANDED OUT TO FAMILIES AT THE CAMP ...

CONDITIONS ARE TOUGH, AND MOHAMMED'S FAMILY GOT AN ADDED BLOW WHEN THEY HEARD OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS WERE KILLED IN A BOMBING.

MOHAMMED IS NOT A GOVERNMENT SUPPORTER HOWEVER.

HE'S A SUNNI, AND HE BELIEVES THAT ISIL WILL PROTECT HIS FAMILY IN THE FUTURE.

HE WANTS AN END TO THE SHIA AL-MALIKI GOVERNMENT AND WANTS THE REVOLUTIONARIES TO "GET POWER AND FREE THE AREA."
