ISIS have reportedly cut off the hands of three women as punishment for unknown charges and publicly flogged men for using mobile phones. In the group's stronghold of Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city, militants are said to have banned the use of private mobiles amid fears residents could act as informants to the US-led coalition bombing Isis positions.
A source told Iraqi News: "(On Thursday) evening, the ISIS militants cut three women's hands off for unknown charges. They also whipped five people for using cellphones to contact their relatives while standing on the celebration stage in the cultural compound in central Mosul."
