ISIS takes over major Iraq oil refinery, blockades 150 troops inside

More civilians are fleeing their homeland as jihadists take control of more ground in Iraq despite ongoing coalition bombings there. They seized half of an Iraqi oil refinery near the norther city of Baiji over the weekend. It's a key strategic point accounting for more than a quarter of the countries refining capacity. Some 150 local soldiers are trapped inside.
