ISIS burns villagers alive after taking 3,000 people hostage
Between 100 and 120 ISIS barbarians rounded up the group of villagers on Thursday, according to the UN's refugee agency.
ISIS has used the men, women and children as human shields as they come under sustained attack from US-backed Iraqi government forces.
The Iraqi Observatory for Human rights gave an initial account that some 1,900 civilians had been captured. Many were said to be escaping the bloodshed near Kirkuk, between Baghdad and Mosul, the terror group’s de facto capital in Iraq.
Islamic State's grip on some towns has been broken, but it still controls Mosul and Raqqa in Syria.
