Isis ‘executes scores of women for refusing to marry militants’, Iraq ministry claims

Iraq’s Ministry of Human Rights has claimed that Isis militants have executed at least 150 women in the Western province of Al-Anbar, Turkish media has reported.

A statement released by the ministry on Tuesday said the militants had attacked women before burying them in mass graves in Fallujah, according to the Anadolu Agency.

“At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah […] after they refused to accept jihad marriage,” the statement said.
