Up to two million more Iraqis could be displaced by the end of the year if multiple crises are not addressed.

That's the warning given to the UN Security Council on Friday by Ján Kubiš, head of the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq, UNAMI.

The Special Representative said that a failing economy and political stalemate were undermining the fight against the terrorist group ISIL, and fuelling Iraq's humanitarian crisis.
