Iraqi refugees from Mosul arrive Wednesday at Khazir refugee camp outside Irbil, 217 miles north of Baghdad, Iraq. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, the al-Qaida breakaway group, on Monday and Tuesday took over much of Mosul in Iraq and then swept into the city of Tikrit farther south. An estimated half a million residents fled Mosul.
