7:28

In our news wrap Wednesday, President Obama moved closer toward rescue steps for thousands of Yazidi refugees who are trapped on a mountain in Northern Iraq by fighters of the Islamic State group. The deputy national security advisor suggested a possible mission with British and Kurdish help. Also, New York’s Long Island suburbs were dumped with a summer’s worth of rain in just a few hours.
