IS Releases New Mass Killing Video

The Islamic State released a video showing the killing of 16 men by drowning some in a cage, decapitating others with explosives, and firing a rocket-propelled grenade into a car.
The video, apparently shot in Iraq’s Nineveh Province, was one of the most brutal yet in a series released by the militant group of killings of opponents in areas under IS control, AFP reported.
The men killed in the latest video are said to be “spies,” with some of them making recorded “confessions.”
First, the militants lead four men to a car and close the doors, after which one fires a rocket-propelled grenade under the vehicle, setting it alight.
A militant is later shown locking five men inside a metal cage, which is then lifted by a crane and submerged in what appears to be a dirty swimming pool.
Two cameras affixed to the outside of the cage show the men’s deaths in the murky water.
The last killings show a militant looping blue detonating cord around the necks of seven kneeling men, after which the explosives are set off and some of the men are decapitated.
IS has executed hundreds of people by gunfire, dozens by beheading, stoned some to death, thrown others from buildings and burned a captured Jordanian pilot alive.
Videos of the killings are a key propaganda tool of the extremists, used to shock and terrify their enemies as well as to draw in new recruits seeking the most brutal and active militant group.
