The terrorist organisation, ISIL, has the money and military capabilities to "prolong its reign of terror" in Iraq.

That warning, from the top UN official in Iraq during a briefing to the Security Council on the current situation in the country.

ISIL controls large portions of territory in the northern and western parts of the country.

Although Iraqi security forces have reclaimed some of those areas, millions of Iraqis remain internally displaced, while many others have fled the country.
