Iraqi Yazidis who fled the Sinjar mountains rest after arriving at a refugee camp in Derik, Syria, on Sunday. Thousands of Yazidi, a minority, fled their homes after ISIS militants took control of Sinjar, and at least 500 Yazidis have been killed by ISIS fighters, according to Iraq’s human rights minister, Mohammed Shia al-Sudani.
