As many as half a million people have been forced to flee the Iraqi city of Mosul amid reports that al-Qaeda militants move into oil refinery town of Baiji
11 Jun 2014
Half a million people have fled Mosul, including troops, after Sunni Islamist insurgents seized Iraq's second biggest city, with reports that a neighbouring town with an oil refinery had also been claimed.
Security sources said on Wednesday that the courthouse and police station on fire in Baiji.
The refinery is protected by around 250 guards, and security sources said the militants had sent a delegation of local tribal sheikhs to convince them to withdraw.
The sources said the guards agreed to pull out on condition they were transferred safely to another town.
The governor of a Ninevah province has said authorities are determined to recapture the northern city of Mosul after large parts of it were seized by Islamist insurgents.
The governor, Atheel al-Nujaifi, said that authorities have a plan to restore security and defeat al-Qaida-inspired militants who seized most of Mosul in a stunning assault, raiding government buildings, pushing out security forces and capturing military vehicles as thousands of residents fled.
Al-Nujaifi also accused senior commanders of the security forces of providing Baghdad with false information about the situation in Mosul and demanding that they should stand trial.
He also says smaller armed groups joined the al-Qaida-breakaway group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) during the fight for control the city.
The United States on Tuesday condemned the seizure of Mosul, calling the situation "extremely serious" and urging fractious political groups to fight Iraq's enemies together.
State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the takeover of Iraq's second biggest city in the last 48 hours by forces from ISIS showed the deterioration of security in the country.
Washington has supplied large amounts of weaponry to Iraq since pulling its forces out in 2011, but Baghdad has failed to heal festering sectarian and political divisions and to curb instability spilling over from the Syrian civil war.
"There's no question that unity – and all sides and officials in Iraq working together – is the only way that they can be successful here," Psaki told reporters.
ISIL originated as an Iraq-based affiliate of al-Qaeda. Recently the group, fighting to set up an Islamic state in parts of Iraq and Syria, has been denounced by al Qaeda's central leadership for apostasy and excessive violence.
Psaki said US officials were tracking events closely in co-ordination with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's government and other officials, including Kurds in their semi-autonomous northern region.
"The situation remains extremely serious," she said in a statement.
Well they almost got it correct: They were NOT FORCED.

Mosul Seized: Jihadis Loot $429m from City's Central Bank to Make Isis World's Richest Terror Force
By Jack Moore
June 11, 2014
The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams (Isis) has become the richest terror group ever after looting 500 billion Iraqi dinars - the equivalent of $429m (£256m) - from Mosul's central bank, according to the regional governor.
Nineveh governor Atheel al-Nujaifi confirmed Kurdish televison reports that Isis militants had stolen millions from numerous banks across Mosul. A large quantity of gold bullion is also believed to have been stolen.
Following the siege of the country's second city, the bounty collected by the group has left it richer than al-Qaeda itself and as wealthy as small nations such as Tonga, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands and the Falkland Islands.
The financial assets that Isis now possess are likely to worsen the Iraqi governement's struggle to defeat the insurgency, which is aimed at creating an Islamic state across the Syrian-Iraqi border.
The Islamist militants took control of Mosul after hundreds of its fighters overwhelmed government military forces in a lightening attack on Monday, forcing up to 500,000 people to flee the city and Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki to call a national state of emergency.
The militants freed up to 1,000 inmates from Mosul's central prison, according to senior police officials. They are also in control of Mosul airport and local television stations.
They also seized considerable amounts of US-supplied military hardware. Photos have already emerged of Isis parading captured Humvees in neighbouring Syria where they are also waging war against President Bashar al-Assad's regime.
In a televised news conference, Maliki said "Iraq is undergoing a difficult stage" and urged the public and government to unite "to confront this vicious attack, which will spare no Iraqi."
The US State Department has released a statement saying that it is "deeply concerned" by the Islamist militants' siege of Mosul.
"The situation remains extremely serious. Senior U.S. officials in both Washington and Baghdad are tracking events closely in coordination with the Government of Iraq," the statement read.
"The United States stands with the Iraqi people," it continued.
Isis captured the city Falluja, 40 miles west of Baghdad, in January and currently controls large swathes of northern Iraq.
The Iraqi government has launched a number of failed assaults on the city leaving hopes of retaking Mosul slim.
An Iraqi army officer told the Independent: "We can't beat them."
"They're trained in street fighting and we're not. We need a whole army to drive them out of Mosul. They're like ghosts; they appear to hit and disappear within seconds."
An amazingly negative article regarding the situation in Mosul.....especially after we have seen evidence that the Peshmerga is kicking some ISIS butt today on the west side of Mosul, pushing the ISIS out of the major military base located there.....
but if you want to focus purely on the negative side of things....this article leads the way.
I find it shameful that the Iraqi military is made to sound like they have given up....claiming they are not trained in street fighting......were they all out on a smoke break when the US troops were training them....as for the Iraqi government launching a number of failed assaults on the city.....I'm not buying that either.....
in fact I'm not buying that they were able to get into the banks they claim to have raided so easily....they make you want to believe the money was just laying there for the taking.....and even at the CBI....no one knows for sure yet what was taken....pure unadulterated speculation on someone's part to sensationalize the story.
Be very wary of what you read....not all the truth may yet be available. Randy
Ooooooo Liar, Liar pants on fire !!!
There is NO CASH ......... No Liquidity ....... It was 90% electronic ..... Intel KNEW they were coming.
You guys must work for FOX NEWS……..lol…..Bozos
No security... no government seated...no budget...kurds want to break away and potentially create their own currency... The president Talabani is no where to be found. ...according to cnn.com 500.000 residents if the second largest city masul have evacuated because of terrorist taking over the city.. no lower denoms.. no HLC.. no Qi cards. And the list goes on and on.
Now im not trying to be a Debbie downer but IMO....there are a lot of things that have to be done before we see any kind of rv/ri.
Can Iraq get their act together anytime soon? IMO at the snails pace that they run in I dont see this happening for a while. Im not trying to kid myself. For every article of good news there are a dozen of bad ones and things we dont even see behind the scenes. That'll about companies investing in iraq banks etc etc. Who wpuld invest in a place like this. Yes I have dinar so technically im invested but that was when I was a novice and had no clue as to what this was all about. But none the less I put my faith in God and the know that rv or no rv he has a plan for me.
Any thoughts on the laundry list of things that have to be done. For the most part I know we dont really know but as with this investment its all opinion on what could happen.
Alan ....... Sir Your list was heavily dealt with on CC last night ........ Please enjoy.
