Iraq crisis: Troops swell in Baghdad amid ISIS threat, humanitarian nightmare

-- A crisis so dire that families are fleeing to Syria. A militant threat so strong that U.S. forces are striking from the sky. And political strife so tense that it could derail hopes for government stability.

As Iraq's political and humanitarian crises escalate at the same time, foreign countries are getting more deeply involved. Here's where things stand:

Tension in Baghdad

Iraqi forces and tanks surged into some Baghdad neighborhoods Sunday as a wave of troops swarmed Baghdad's Green Zone -- the secure area where many government buildings, the military headquarters and the U.S. Embassy are located, two Iraqi police officials said.

Exactly what led to the surge remains unclear. But some believe the beefed up military presence is part of a power struggle between second-term Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and newly elected President Fuad Masum.

"You've got Nuri al-Maliki refusing to step down. Now he's mobilized not just security troops loyal to him, but now he's mobilized army units to put tanks in the streets,"said retired Lt. Col. Rick Francona, a CNN military analyst.

"Some of the bridges have been closed. It looks like he's trying to lock down the city in some sort of confrontation with the President, so this does not portend well."

Choosing a prime minister is a key next step for Iraq's leaders. Critics of al-Maliki have called for him to pull his name out of the running, but he's repeatedly refused.

Al-Maliki has accused Masum of violating the country's constitution by extending the deadline for Iraq's biggest political coalitions to nominate a candidate for prime minister.

But there could be another reason for more troops in the capital. Retired U.S. Marine Gen. James Williams said the stepped up security could be a response to advances by militants from ISIS, the Sunni Muslim extremist group that has now declared itself the Islamic State.

"It could be a show of force. If you're talking about protecting government buildings, there may be a sense that ISIS forces may be closer than everybody thinks at this point," Williams said.

"That could be a great sign for concern. But it may also be a concern that there's a coup afoot."

Airstrikes against ISIS

The threat of ISIS has been so strong that the U.S. military carried out a new wave of airstrikes Sunday against militant targets in Iraq.

American aircraft struck five targets within five hours Sunday, including armed vehicles and a mortar position, U.S. Central Command said.

Iraqi officials said U.S. airstrikes Saturday killed 16 ISIS fighters, and an Iraqi airstrike in Sinjar killed an additional 45 ISIS fighters, Iraq state media reported.

Last week, U.S. President Barack Obama authorized targeted attacks not only to protect Iraqi minorities from ISIS' killing rampage, but also Americans stationed in the Kurdish regional capital of Irbil.

Humanitarian nightmare

In their effort to create a caliphate across parts of Iraq and Syria, ISIS fighters have slaughtered civilians as they take over cities in both countries.

In Syria, the group put some of its victims' severed heads on poles. In another instance caught on camera, a man appears to be forced to his knees, surrounded by masked militants who identify themselves on video as ISIS members. They force the man at gunpoint to "convert" to Islam, then behead him.

In Iraq, one of the most dire humanitarian nightmares is unfolding on Mount Sinjar, where tens of thousands of Yazidis have been trapped.

Yazidis are part of one the world's oldest monotheistic religious minorities and have been targeted by ISIS. Their religion is considered a pre-Islamic sect that draws from Christianity, Judaism and the ancient monotheistic religion of Zoroastrianism.

Dozens of people including 60 children, have died on the mountain, where the Yazidis are battling extreme temperatures, hunger and thirst. On Sunday, Iraqi Ministry of Human Rights spokesman Kamil Amin said it was possible that as many as 500 Yazidis had been killed. The ministry had also heard reports -- but had not confirmed -- that some had been buried alive.

"It's difficult to be accurate about these numbers, but initially we have reported 500 Iraqi Yazidis have died from either ISIS direct killings or from starvation and dehydration," Amin told CNN. "We have heard some reports from activists and local journalists that some families were buried alive."

CNN is unable to authenticate reports regarding the Yazidi death toll or the allegation that some were buried alive.

Amin said Kurdish forces were able to break the siege by ISIS and help thousands of stranded Yazidis board trucks, which drove them to the Syrian border town of Hasaka near Iraq. They were then driven north along the Syrian-Iraqi border to Dohuk, a region in northern Iraq's Kurdish region.

On Sunday night, the U.S. military made a fourth airdrop of food and water to Iraqis stranded on Mount Sinjar, according to U.S. Central Command. In total, U.S. military aircraft have delivered more than 74,000 meals and more than 15,000 gallons of fresh drinking water, Centcom said.

Britain and France have said they will join the United States in the airdrops. A British C-130 cargo plane delivered aid to Iraq on Sunday, a Ministry of Defense spokesman said.

Iraqi security forces have been able to airlift about 100 to 150 people a day off Sinjar Mountain, said Marzio Babille of UNICEF, the United Nations' children's agency. But time is running out for many who cannot reach airdropped supplies.

COURT NATS - DETECTIVE STODDARD: She didn't show

any emotion when we notified her of Cooper's death.

THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S OFFICE SENDING HARRIS A VICTIM IMPACT STATEMENT -

REQUIRING THE 30-YEAR-OLD TO DETAIL HOW THE LOSS HAS AFFECTED HER.

SOT - LAWRENCE ZIMMERMAN, HARRIS' ATTORNEY On that form it asks

relation to victim, she wrote self, that's because she's considered the

victim under Georgia law and by them sending it to her I think they're

alluding to the fact that really she is the victim.

HARRIS WRITING "I now live a tortured existence," NOTING SHE LOST HER

JOB AND IS RECEIVING COUNSELING FOR DEPRESSION - DESCRIBING HER HUSBAND AS

A "wonderful father" THAT "would never have knowingly allowed any harm to

come to our son."

SOT - LAWRENCE ZIMMERMAN, HARRIS' ATTORNEY It would be very

unusual for someone to be labeled a victim and then all of a sudden become a

suspect.

IN A STATEMENT TO ABC NEWS, THE DA'S OFFICE CLAIMS SENDING THE

STATEMENT IS A STANDARD PROCEDURESAYING it "is not part of the investigation

by police."

HARRIS HONORED HER SON COOPER ON WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN HIS BIRTHDAY JUST OVER

ONE WEEK AGO - HAND CRAFTING THIS MEMORIAL READING "HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY TO

OUR BUDDY" -- SEEN IN THIS PHOTO HARRIS SHARED EXCLUSIVELY WITH ABC NEWS --

STRIPPERS PROTEST OUTSIDE CHURCH-VOWIPE


THE SIGN OUTSIDE ONE OHIO CHURCH WELCOMES EVERYBODY.

BUT STRIPPERS AT A NEARBY STRIP CLUB SAY --

THAT'S NOT TRUE.

SUNDAY --

CHURCH GOERS WERE GREETED BY PARTIALLY-NAKED STRIPPERS.

FOR YEARS NOW --

NEW BEGINNINGS MINISTRIES HAS TRIED TO GET THE STRIP CLUB "THE FOXHOLE" TO CLOSE ITS DOORS.

THE PASTOR OF THE CHURCH STANDS BEHIND THAT --

AND MAKES NO APOLOGIES FOR THE CRUSADE.

BUT THE STRIP CLUB EMPLOYEES THINKS THAT'S NOT FULFILLING THE CHURCH.

A WHITE CURTAIN IS NOW BLOCKING THE VIEW OF THE PROTESTORS.

--LEAD IN--

DANCERS FROM AN OHIO STRIP CLUB WEREN'T SHY ABOUT SENDING A MESSAGE TO A LOCAL CHURCH.

THEY WENT TOPLESS IN PROTEST OF CHURCHGOERS PROTESTING THEIR CLUB.

GLENN MCENTYRE REPORTS.

--REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS--

THE SIGN OUTSIDE NEW BEGINNINGS MINISTRIES IN WARSAW WELCOMES ALL.

BUT TODAY'S SUNDAY SERVICE HAD SOME DECIDEDLY UNWELCOME VISITORS:

WOMEN BEARING PICKET SIGNS, AND BARING THEIR BODIES FOR ALL TO SEE.

THOMAS GEORGE IS THE MAN BEHIND THE PROTEST.

"I have to point out the hypocrisy that I see."

GEORGE IS THE OWNER OF A STRIP CLUB CALLED THE FOXHOLE NORTH.

HE SAYS FOR YEARS, NEW BEGINNINGS HAS WORKED TO BRING HIS CLUB TO AN END.

"They come up every weekend, and they're very abusive and certainly unchristian-like."

"Calling the girls ***** and ******."

"They're abusive to the customers. They sit out with video cameras, they take pictures of license plates, tell them they're posting them to the web."

PASTOR BILL DUNFEE MAKES NO SECRET OF HIS INTENTIONS

"I hope he will realize that the foxhole has no business in this community."

AND MAKES NO APOLOGIES FOR HIS CRUSADE AGAINST THE CLUB.

"I take very seriously the responsibility as a pastor to see to it that the gospel of christ is lifted up, that Christ himself is lifted up and that evil is confronted."

George admits today's topless protest is an extreme measure, but says it's far from evil.

As eyes of church goers were protected behind a hanging tarp, some members confronted the protesters.

"Love is the answer, and you don't have it baby. God is love."

"Ma'am, you know nothing about love. You know plenty about lust. You know plenty about sex, but you know nothing about love."

DUNFEE CALLS THE SEMI-NUDE PROTEST SHAMEFUL.

GEORGE SAYS HE AND HIS TOPLESS TROOPS WILL RETREAT, WHEN NEW BEGINNINGS FINDS A NEW TARGET.

THE PROTESTERS SAY THEY PLAN TO BE BACK AT THE CHURCH NEXT SUNDAY, AND INTO THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE. Return to index of stories...

WEATHER TEASE-WXWALL


FORECAST: QUIET CONDITIONS TONIGHT, LIMITED RAIN CHANCES TUESDAY

Generally quiet conditions are expected tonight with only an isolated shower risk across Southwest Florida. The areas of greatest opportunity for some rain come for communities along and east of I-75.

Overnight low temperatures will range from the mid to upper 70s along the coastline to low and mid 70s for communities in the inland areas of the state.

For Tuesday, we will experience an onshore component to the wind. With winds coming in from the Gulf of Mexico it is possible we could see an isolated shower scrape along our coastal communities early in the day, before lunchtime.

By the afternoon hours, the risk for rain and thunder will migrate inland keeping most of the coastal areas of the region dry.

Highs on Tuesday should range from around 91 at Naples, 93 at Fort Myers and 94 at Port Charlotte.

Wednesday will likely have a decent chance for an early-day shower mainly along the coastline. By the afternoon our rain prospects again move inland east of the interstate.

TROPICAL UPDATE

A new tropical wave is being noted by satellite imagery off the western coast of Africa.

The unorganized collection of showers and thunderstorms is showing no signs of immediate development.

According to National Hurricane Center meteorologists, the disturbance has a 0% chance of cyclone development in the next two days, with a 20% chance through the next five.

Forecast model data places the tropical wave moving westward at 15 to 20 mph through Monday.

Over the open Atlantic, model forecast data diverges. Some data suggests the disturbance will curl more toward the north in the Atlantic while other models hold it moving due west toward the Caribbean.

It is too early to determine if the tropical wave will become the third named tropical event of the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Center and if it will pose any impact on our weather in Southwest Florida. Return to index of stories...

WX TEASE-WXWALL


FORECAST: QUIET CONDITIONS TONIGHT, LIMITED RAIN CHANCES TUESDAY

Generally quiet conditions are expected tonight with only an isolated shower risk across Southwest Florida. The areas of greatest opportunity for some rain come for communities along and east of I-75.

Overnight low temperatures will range from the mid to upper 70s along the coastline to low and mid 70s for communities in the inland areas of the state.

For Tuesday, we will experience an onshore component to the wind. With winds coming in from the Gulf of Mexico it is possible we could see an isolated shower scrape along our coastal communities early in the day, before lunchtime.

By the afternoon hours, the risk for rain and thunder will migrate inland keeping most of the coastal areas of the region dry.

Highs on Tuesday should range from around 91 at Naples, 93 at Fort Myers and 94 at Port Charlotte.

Wednesday will likely have a decent chance for an early-day shower mainly along the coastline. By the afternoon our rain prospects again move inland east of the interstate.

TROPICAL UPDATE

A new tropical wave is being noted by satellite imagery off the western coast of Africa.

The unorganized collection of showers and thunderstorms is showing no signs of immediate development.

According to National Hurricane Center meteorologists, the disturbance has a 0% chance of cyclone development in the next two days, with a 20% chance through the next five.

Forecast model data places the tropical wave moving westward at 15 to 20 mph through Monday.

Over the open Atlantic, model forecast data diverges. Some data suggests the disturbance will curl more toward the north in the Atlantic while other models hold it moving due west toward the Caribbean.

It is too early to determine if the tropical wave will become the third named tropical event of the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Center and if it will pose any impact on our weather in Southwest Florida. Return to index of stories...
