Sunni detainees executed

27 Jun, 2014

In a recent report, Amnesty International states there is evidence showing a pattern of “extra judicial executions” of Sunni detainees by government forces and Shiite militias in the northern Iraqi cities of Tal Afar, Mosul and Baquba.  Senior crisis response adviser, Donatella Rovera says:

Reports of multiple incidents where Sunni detainees have been killed in cold blood while in the custody of Iraqi forces are deeply alarming.  The killings suggest a worrying pattern of reprisal attacks against Sunnis in retaliation for ISIS gains.
