The Isis reality TV show — Victims confront terrorists on controversial Iraqi TV show

The confessions of convicted terrorists are being broadcast on an Iraqi reality TV show in which they are also forced to face the relatives of victims.

‘In the Grip of the Law’ – produced by the state-run Al Iraqiya channel in cooperation with the Iraqi Ministry of Interior – is part of a concerted media effort to attack the Islamic extremist group Isis and garner public support for the Iraqi forces that were humiliated by Isis this summer.

Every Friday the show’s host Ahmed Hassan, who has reportedly become a target himself, quizzes convicted terrorists who remain in shackles and bright yellow prison jumpsuits for the show’s duration.
