2.2 million Iraqis displaced by ISIS
A Norwegian humanitarian group has said that a record 38 million people have been internally displaced in their countries worldwide, with 2.2 million Iraqis alone forced to flee from their homes in 2014 after the Islamic State group overrun their areas.

The study by the Norwegian Refugee Council’s Internal Displacement Monitoring Center was released on Thursday. It said 11 million were newly displaced last year — mostly because of conflicts in Syria, Iraq, South Sudan, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo, accounting for 60% of the new displacement. The group says at least 1.1 million Syrians also fled their homes last year.
Dreaded Islamic State terror group has purportedly opened its own 5-star hotel complete with 262 rooms, restaurants, ballrooms and gym in Iraq’s Mosul city for its Jihadist commanders, according to a media report.

The hotel is believed to be the Ninawa International Hotel, which received a number of positive reviews before being overtaken by militants and stripped of its branding, The Independent reported.

Pictures circulated by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria-affiliated social media accounts show members tending to a well-maintained garden, polishing floors and cleaning windows, expansive swimming pools and two black ISIS flags flying at the front of the multi-storey building.

It has 262 rooms, two restaurants, two ballrooms and a gymnasium, among other facilities, the report said.

ISIS-affiliated Twitter accounts were promoting an event to mark the hotel’s opening night on May 1, where all Muslims were told they could attend for free.
