IS jihadists execute more than 40 tribesmen in Iraq's Anbar

Iraqi Shiite fighters secure an area West of the central holy city of Najaf near a road leading to the restive Anbar provinceJihadists from the Islamic State group executed Wednesday more than 40 members of a tribe that fought against them in Iraq’s Anbar province, sources said. The men from the Albu Nimr tribe were killed in the Heet area, northwest of Baghdad, which was overrun by the militants earlier this month, a local leader and a doctor said. IS has overrun large areas of Anbar, and the killings are likely aimed at discouraging resistance from powerful local tribes, who will be key to any successful bid to retake the province. Pro-government forces have suffered a string of setbacks in Anbar in recent weeks.
