Islamic State fighter accused of slaughtering 60 soldiers
An Islamic State (IS) fighter accused of slaughtering 60 soldiers in one of the terror group's most gruesome mass executions was forced to chew a sandal as he appeared in front of news cameras in Iraq.
In Arab culture, even showing the soles of your shoes is considered a great insult.
The man - named on social media as Adnan Abdul Ridha - was reportedly arrested for his role in the bloody Speicher Camp massacre where an estimated 770 unarmed Iraqi air force cadets were captured, gunned down and buried by Islamic State thugs.
An Iraqi court used satellite images of the site where they were killed, as well as IS's own propaganda video of the killings, to sentence 24 IS members to death for their role in the massacre.
Ridha is accused of gunning down 60 of them himself and could also be sentenced to death although the Iraqi Security Forces have not confirmed this.
