Islamic State militants are carrying out “ethnic cleansing on a historic scale” in northern Iraq, according to new evidence discovered by Amnesty International.
Survivors told the charity that ethnic minorities in the area were being “systematically and deliberately” targeted by the group.
Some described how men and boys were taken to the outskirts of villages in pick-up trucks, forced to squat over the edge of graves and shot execution-style.
Others said women and girls from the Yazidi minority were taken away from their families as slaves for the militants and threatened with rape.
