CAIRO: Arab League chief Nabil Elaraby Monday denounced "crimes against humanity" committed by jihadists in Iraq against the minority Yezidi sect, demanding the perpetrators be brought to justice.

Iraqi politicians have warned of the dire plight of Yezidis stranded high up a mountain after Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) militants overran their lands.
