Excerpt from Townhall
Written by Justin Holcomb
ISIS has executed 284 men and boys in Mosul, Iraq, according to a CNN intelligence source.
A mass grave was established for the dead as ISIS used a bulldozer to dump the corpses at the scene of the executions. The victims were all shot and some were children, said the source, but CNN could not independently confirm the claim.
The United Nations earlier said it is "gravely worried" that ISIS has taken 550 families from villages around Mosul and is using them as human shields as Iraqi forces engaged the ISIS stronghold.
