When Islamic State militants attacked northern Iraq in late July and early August, tens of thousands of people from Yezidi religious group ran for their lives.

I visited university student Hadi Keyri and Yezidi refugees at a privately-funded refugee camp in Dyarbakir, Turkey. Keyri recalled the impossible choice the militants gave the Yezidis.
