Iraq conflict: Iraqi Kurd PM Nechirvan Barzani

The prime minister of Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region has told the BBC's Jim Muir he does not believe the country will stay together, as Sunni extremist militants continue to make territorial gains.

Nechirvan Barzani said it would be "almost impossible" for Iraq to return to the situation that existed before the city of Mosul was captured, and that the various factions needed to "sit down and find a way to live together".
