Mass graves with 320 bodies discovered in Iraq

Baghdad, January 8: Remains of at least 320 people believed to have been killed by the Islamic State (IS) terrorists were found in five mass graves in Iraq, media reported. Residents of areas on the southern and western edges of Iraqi city of Mosul, currently controlled by IS, discovered the graves that also included the bodies of children, Press Tv reported Wednesday citing witnesses as saying. They added that some body parts in the graves are deemed to belong to members of Iraq’s Yazadi Kurds. Last month, Kurdish Peshmerga forces discovered nine mass graves containing the bodies of Yazadi victims in the northwestern town of Sinjar. IS started its campaign of terror in Iraq in early June 2014. The heavily–armed militants took control of Mosul before sweeping through parts of the country’s Sunni Arab heartland. (IANS)
