Iraq: UN warns of impact on religious minorities

As the conflict continues in Iraq, the UN has recently warned of its impact on religious minorities.

The BBC's Reda El Mawy has been to meet some of them.

He started by visiting Lalish, at the heart of the ancient Yazidi faith that combines Nature Worship, Christianity and Islam amongst other beliefs.

He then travelled to Bashiqah home to many Iraqi Christians.
