IS Shows Video of Kurdish Peshmerga Forces in Cages

The Islamic State militant group released a new video on Sunday, showing what appears to be Kurdish Peshmerga forces paraded down Iraqi streets in cages.
It shows at least 21 men in orange outfits hauled in the cages atop the beds of pickup trucks. A man says in the video that Peshmerga soldiers were captured by IS.
A man with a microphone interviews some of the captives, who say they are Peshmerga soldiers. Most of those interviewed say they are from Kirkuk. The prisoners, under duress, call on their fellow Peshmerga soldiers to give up their fight against IS, CNN wrote.
The video also features superimposed bios for each prisoner. One captive is described as an officer for the Iraqi army.
In recent months, the Peshmerga have been battling IS as the extremist group tries to advance across Iraq and Syria.
