Islamic militant group posts images that appear to show mass killings in Iraq As Iraq’s government bolstered Baghdad’s defenses Sunday, the Islamic militant group that captured two major cities last week posted graphic photos that appeared to show its fighters massacring dozens of captured Iraqi soldiers.
