500 bod­ies found at prison near Mo­sul:

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

A pro-gov­ern­ment Shi­ite Iraqi mili­tia said it found a mass grave con­tain­ing the re­mains of about 500 peo­ple at a prison north­west of Mo­sul. Iraqi mil­i­tary forces seized con­trol of Badoush prison from the Is­lamic State this past week. The ex­trem­ist group took con­trol of Badoush vil­lage and the prison com­plex in June 2014, and Hu­man Rights Watch said the group re­port­edly ex­e­cuted 600 in­mates at the prison on June 10 that year. Sur­vivors told the rights group at the time that most of those ex­e­cuted were Shi­ites.
