Reuters photographs show Islamic State fighters on Kurdish border

KHAZER, Iraq, Aug 7 (Reuters) - Reuters photographs show Islamic State fighters controlling a checkpoint at the border area of the Kurdish semi-autonomous region on Thursday.

The Sunni militants have been making a dramatic push in the north, routing Kurdish forces, since mounting an offensive over the weekend which has alarmed the Baghdad government and regional powers.
