Eight dead bodies hang from a metal frame in the Iraq’s Kirkuk province in Islamic State’s latest public display of barbarity.
The gruesome images which emerged on social media show the men’s limp bodies suspended from their feet off a tall structure in the town of Hawija.
The notorious black flag used by Islamist groups like ISIS is displayed above them as horrified onlookers inspect the scene.
Some of the deceased men appear to be wearing military fatigues but it is not known if they were Iraqi soldiers.
An ISIS fighter believed to be Abu Al-Rahman poses triumphantly in one of the pictures – giving the one-fingered salute in front of a bloodied victim’s corpse.
