‘Buried Yazidis alive’

10 Aug, 2014

Iraq’s human rights minister says ISIS buried Yazidi alive in attacks on the town of Sinjar that kill at least 500 of the ethnic minority in the north of the country. Mohammed Shia al-Sudani:

We have striking evidence obtained from Yazidis fleeing Sinjar and some who escaped death, and also crime scene images that show indisputably that the gangs of the Islamic State have executed at least 500 Yazidis after seizing Sinjar. Some of the victims, including women and children were buried alive in scattered mass graves in and around Sinjar.
