Asian Journal - - World -

Bagh­dad: The Is­lamic State (IS) mil­i­tant group has pub­lished a grue­some video pur­port­edly show­ing over a dozen men be­ing mur­dered in north­ern Iraq, in­clud­ing five al­leged spies be­ing drowned in­side a cage in a swimming pool. The 16 ‘spies’ were drowned, be­headed or blown up us­ing a rocket-pro­pelled grenade, IS’s media arm claimed in the seven-minute video, recorded with re­li­gious back­ing mu­sic. Im­ages showed the men be­ing split into groups and dressed in or­ange jump­suits to be mur­dered. Five were seen be­ing locked in a cage sim­i­lar to that used to burn cap­tured Jor­da­nian pi­lot Muath al-Kasas­beh alive ear­lier this year. The cage was then low­ered into a swimming pool with un­der­wa­ter cam­eras that recorded the men drown­ing.
