ISIS kills 85 more members of Iraqi tribe

BAGHDAD: ISIS militants have executed 85 more members of the Albu Nimr tribe in Iraq in a mass killing campaign launched last week in retaliation for resistance to the group's territorial advances, a tribal leader and security official said on Saturday.

Sheikh Naeem al-Ga'oud, one of the tribe's leaders, told Reuters that ISIS killed 50 displaced members of Albu Nimr on Friday. In a separate incident, a security official said 35 bodies were found in a mass grave.
