Baghdad, ISIS Carry out Executions; 238 Killed in Iraq
36 people convicted of participating in the mass slaughter of hundreds of
security personnel at Camp Speicher in 2014. The men were hanged in Nasariya.
Many human rights groups warn that the Iraqi justice system is flawed if not
outright corrupt, so many of these men could have been innocent. A total
of 45 executions were carried out this year, so far.
At least 238 people were killed
and 13 more wounded:
In Mosul, militants executed 40
people for conspiracy or people smuggling. They executed
four more, including two of their own, on sodomy charges. An airstrike on
the Dindan neighborhood left 10
militants dead. Nineteen
militants were killed in a strike on Mithraq. Another 20
were killed in a strike on central Mosul.
