Extremist Iraqi militants repairing Mosul dam, Kurds in rush to arms

After routing Kurdish forces earlier this week, Islamic State militants are just a 30-minute drive from Arbil, the Kurdish regional capital which had been spared sectarian fighting in other parts of Iraq for a decade.Employees of foreign oil firms in Arbil were flying out. Kurds were snapping up AK-47 assault rifles in arms markets for fear of imminent attack, although these were ineffective against Islamic State fighters with superior firepower.The Kurdistan Regional Government, meanwhile, has been lobbying Washington for more heavy weaponry and air support.
