Iraq tells United Nations that Islamic State committed genocide

"These terrorist groups have desecrated all human values. They have committed the most heinous criminal terrorist acts against the Iraqi people whether Shi'ite, Sunni, Christians, Turkmen, Shabak or Yazidis," Iraq's U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim said.

"These are in fact crimes of genocide committed against humanity that must be held accountable before international justice," he told the U.N. Security Council.
