Three days of national mourning came to an end yesterday in Niger. Weekend attacks near the border with Mali left more than 100 casualties and forced at least 1,000 people to flee.
August marks a dark anniversary. Six years ago, ISIS captured the Nineveh plains in Iraq, including the city of Mosul. They captured and killed Yazidi and Christian men and women with savage zealotry. Thousands lost their lives. Hundreds of thousands were displaced. Many still haven’t returned home.
