The images show captured Iraqis being made to lie face-down in a ditch with their arms tied behind their backs. Then they appear blood-soaked after being shot. Iraq's top military spokesman Lt. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi confirmed the photos’ authenticity to the Associated Press and said he was aware of incidents where soldiers were killed by the masses. ISIS has already captured Mosul and Tikrit, and the group has vowed to bring their battle to Baghdad, where a suicide bomb on Sunday killed ten and injured 21.
