    Islamist insurgents have issued an ultimatum to northern Iraq’s dwindling Christian population to either convert to Islam, pay a religious levy or face death, according to a statement issued by the Islamic State.

    A resident of Mosul said Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, now called Caliph Ibrahim, had set a Saturday deadline for Christians who did not want to stay and live under those terms to “leave the borders of the Islamic Caliphate.”

    “After this date, there is nothing between us and them but the sword,” the statement said.
