Iraqi forces accused of killing civilians near Mosul

Iraqi authorities deny Amnesty allegations that
their forces tortured and killed six civilians during
the Mosul push.
Men wearing federal police uniforms tortured and
executed civilians in villages south of Mosul during
an ongoing operation to retake the city from ISIL,
according to a rights group, an allegation denied
by Iraq’s authorities.
In a report published on Thursday, Amnesty
International said its researchers had gathered
evidence that up to six people were “extrajudicially
executed” last month in the al-Shura and al-
Qayyarah sub-districts over suspected ties to ISIL,
also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the
Levant or ISIS.
