Christians from the ancient community of Mosul in northern Iraq have fled the city after being given a deadline of Saturday afternoon to convert to Islam.
Extremists from al Qaeda offshoot ISIL gave them a choice of denouncing Christianity, paying a protection tax, or death 'by the sword.'
The militants seized Mosul in June, declaring a 'caliphate' and imposing strict Islamic law. Christian homes were spray painted with the letter "N" for Nasrani, meaning Christian.
