Investigating a Massacre, Iraq Should Address Root Causes
On December 31, Iraqi security forces killed 20 people from a single family in a raid on a home in Jableh district in Babil governorate, south of Baghdad.
Security forces carried out the raid after reportedly receiving false information about a suspect purportedly living there.
While the Iraqi government swiftly opened an investigation, the authorities should examine how security forces often appear to rely on unsubstantiated, questionable, and/or false information to target suspects, especially alleged ISIS members.
