When violence hits a city, people flee. But that can make them targets for terrorists to capture or kill.
That's what happened in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk in early August. The United Nations says ISIS took as many as 3,000 Iraqis into captivity. At least 12 were killed.
Iraqi Observatory for Human Rights put its estimate of the situation lower, at 1,900 people captured.
