title : ISIS Violence Against Christians in Middle East Is 'Genocide,' Says DNC Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton
summary : Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Tuesday referenced the killing of Christians, Iraqi Yazidis and other religious minorities in the Middle East as “genocide.” She previously had been reluctant to use that term regarding Islamic State violence.
