By Samia Nakhoul and Michael Georgy ERBIL, Iraq (Reuters) - The United Nations voiced concern on Tuesday that Kurdish authorities had forced 250 Sunni Arab families to leave Kirkuk after an Islamic State attack on the Kurdish-controlled city, saying the move could be seen as collective punishment. Lise Grande, the UN humanitarian coordinator for Iraq, also said that the United Nations expects a mass exodus from Mosul - perhaps within the next few days - as Iraqi army prepares to storm the northern Iraqi city which is still home to over a million people. In the worst case scenario, Grande said it was also possible that Islamic State fighters who have controlled Mosul for more than two years could resort to "rudimentary chemical weapons" to hold back the impending assault.

Melet confirmed that Camrail had recently doubled the size of the train to 16 carriages, with the permission of authorities, to accommodate extra passengers following the collapse of portion of a main highway on the same route.

The Affordable Care Act -- popularly known as Obamacare -- has allowed millions of uninsured people to get health insuranceAmericans will see Obamacare health insurance costs jump an average of 25 percent next year, adding fuel to the US political firestorm over the system that Republicans have repeatedly tried to overturn. The big increase will be seen in the 38 states with federally-managed health care exchanges, according to a report released late Monday by the Department of Health and Human Services. Despite the sharp increase, far higher than in previous years, the report said "most consumers are experiencing below average increases," and face lower costs than insurance plans outside the system.
