HUNDREDS YAZIDIS EXECUTED BY ISIS IN IRAQ

yazidi_106A statement from the Yazidi Progress Party, on Friday 05/01/2015,  said 300 Yazidi captives were killed in the Tal Afar district near the city. Thousands of members of the religious minority group, a mixed of early Christianity and Persian faith and  considered infidels by I.S.I.S.

were captured last year.  Many are reported to have been held in Mosul, the main stronghold of IS after the militants swept through large areas of northern and western Iraq, and eastern Syria in 2014.

It is not clear how they were killed, or why this has happened now, says the BBC’s Middle East editor Alan Johnston.
