IRAQ: ISIS executions near Mosul - VIDEO

Human Rights Watch
The Islamic State (also known as ISIS) executed and dumped the bodies of possibly hundreds of detainees at a site near Mosul, Iraq, as the militant group battles Iraqi Security Forces for control of the city.

Multiple witnesses told Human Rights Watch that the bodies of those killed, including bodies of members of Iraqi security forces, prisoners, and women, were thrown into a naturally occurring sinkhole south of western Mosul.  Local residents said that before pulling out of the area in mid-February, ISIS laid improvised landmines at the site.
