Yazidi villagers 'massacred' in Iraq
Militants in northern Iraq have massacred at least 80 men from the Yazidi faith in a village and abducted women and children, reports say.
Senior Kurdish official Hoshyar Zebari said the men were killed in two groups after a column of Islamic State (IS) vehicles arrived in Kawju on Friday.
A US drone strike later destroyed two vehicles from the convoy, he said.
Reports say US warplanes have struck IS positions near the Mosul dam, captured last week.
Residents near the dam told AP news agency that the air strikes hit on Saturday afternoon, killing some militants.
Kurdish regional Rudaw TV earlier said several surrounding towns were also struck.
An official from US Central Command would not confirm or deny the reports.
"For the safety and security of our personnel, we will not discuss or speculate on reports of ongoing or future operations," the official told the BBC.
The dam controls the water and power supply to a large area of northern Iraq.
