Shiites killed by Islamic State group
Video shows 8 beheaded in Syria
BEIRUT (AP) — A new video released by the Islamic State group on Sunday shows its fighters cutting off the heads of eight men said to be Shiite Muslims. The video posted on social media said the men were beheaded in the central Syrian province of Hama.
The video could not be immediately independently verified, but it appeared genuine and corresponded to other AP reporting of the events. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also said that the video was authentic.
IS has beheaded scores of people since capturing large parts of Iraq and Syria last year in a self-declared caliphate.
