(06-24 18:52)

More than 1,000 people were killed in Iraq between June 5 and 22 as Islamist militants swept through large swaths of northern and western Iraq, the UN said Tuesday.
At least 1,075 people were killed and 658 injured in the country during the 17-day period, Rupert Colville, a spokesman for the UN human rights office told reporters in Geneva, stressing that the numbers "should be viewed very much as a minimum.''
