Special representative Nickolay Mladenov says “The situation of the people in Amerli is desperate and demands immediate action to prevent the possible massacre of its citizens. I urge the Iraqi government to do all it can to relieve the siege and to ensure that the residents receive life-saving humanitarian assistance or are evacuated in a dignified manner.”

The town is said to be under siege by Islamic State militants for two months, with no electricity or drinking water, and is running out of food and medical supplies.
