TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Insurgents "massacred" some 80 members of Iraq's Yazidi minority in a village in the country's north, a Yazidi lawmaker and two Kurdish officials said. The news came as tribal leaders from Iraq's Sunni heartland offered their conditional backing for a new government that hopes to contain bloodshed and stop the advance of militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
