"Iraq has hanged 36 Islamic State militants convicted of involvement in the June 2014 massacre of hundreds of Iraqi military recruits near Tikrit, government officials said. The victims, among thousands of unarmed Air Force recruits at Camp Speicher military base, were Shiites and non-Muslims who were tied up and driven from the camp. They were taken to multiple locations, shot and their bodies were dumped in trenches or rivers. Sunnis apparently were spared. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack and released video of some killings." (08/21/16)
