Former Australian MP branded 'stupid' for visiting Iraq front line

A former Australian MP was branded "stupid" by prime minister Malcolm Turnbull on Friday for visiting the Iraqi front line in a battle between Isil and Kurdish Peshmerga in defiance of government guidelines.
Wyatt Roy, 26, has been widely criticised for travelling to a war zone and getting caught in the crossfire between Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and Kurdish Peshmerga forces near an area Australians are legally banned from visiting.
