UN rights chief denounces 'cold-blooded' Iraq executions

An image uploaded on June 14, 2014 on the jihadist website Welayat Salahuddin allegedly shows militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) capturing Iraqi security forces membersUN human rights chief Navi Pillay on Monday condemned a series of “cold-blooded” killings of Iraqi soldiers and religious leaders by Sunni militants, saying it amounted to war crimes. “Based on corroborated reports from a number sources, it appears that hundreds of non-combatant men were summarily executed over the past five days, including surrendered and captured soldiers, military conscripts, police and others associated with the (Baghdad) government,” Pillay said in a statement. Militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) jihadist group have seized the north Iraqi cities of Mosul and Tikrit and have vowed to move on Baghdad to topple the Shiite-dominated government.
