Militiamen ‘torture’ IS suspects on city outskirts



Mosul :  Militias involved in driving so-called Islamic State (IS) out of Mosul have been carrying out revenge attacks on men and boys in nearby villages, Amnesty International says.

The group says people suspected of having ties to IS have been publicly humiliated, tortured and beaten.

Iraq’s special forces paused in their advance on eastern districts of Mosul on Wednesday to comb the streets for any remaining IS fighters.

IS overran the city in June 2014.
