Iraqi Forces under Investigation for War Crimes

By Patrick Schmidt.

Elite units of the Iraqi Security Forces have been placed under investigation by the Iraqi government.

Reports show these units torturing and executing members of the Islamic State (IS, ISIS, ISIL). Other images show Iraqi soldiers hanging members of the IS from towers. Iraqi authorities are now trying to find additional photos of these crimes.

Iraqi officials warn that such actions make Iraqi soldiers appear no better than members of the IS.
