(PTI) ISIS militants who lost a key town to Iraqi forces were burned alive in full public view by their own men after they fled to the group’s stronghold of Mosul, in a terrifying message to other fighters, a media report has said.
Several Mosul residents claim that when the black clad jihadists made it to Mosul, some 250 miles north of Ramadi city retaken by Iraqi forces, they were set on fire in the town’s main square, the FoxNews.com reported.
"They were grouped together and made to stand in a circle. And set on fire to die," a former resident of northern Iraq now living in the US but in touch with family back home was quoted as saying by the FoxNews.com.
