cities and driven a wedge. symbolically, it's important because this is the city where a group was driven out and their horrible stories about massacres and rapes going on inside the city. many people fled to a mountain where with we were and this is where the u.s. military, 14 months ago, decided enough is enough and started their air campaign because of what happened here in sinjar. >> charlie d'agata in sinjar, iraq, thank you very much. today is a national day of mourning in lebanon. islamic militants say they are responsible for a bomb that killed 4e people yesterday and 200 wounded. they struck a stronghold in beirut. speaking in iowa, donald trump reluctantly divulged his plan for taking care of isis.
