There's something regal about Abdi Ismail. The white-bearded paterfamilias sits cross-legged on a mattress, a scarf wrapped turban-like round his head, his children and chickens keeping a respectful distance.
Ismail's extended family lives in a tent stamped with U.N. logos. He's proud they're here.
"We didn't leave our mountain," he says. "We stayed here and we fought."
They've been eking out an existence on the rugged slopes of Iraq's Mount Sinjar since ISIS took their village of Tal Azer in summer last year.
