Officials: Islamic State group kills 36 in Iraq

The Associated Press

BAGHDAD (AP) An Iraqi official and a Sunni tribal leader say Islamic State group militants have shot dead 36 Sunni tribesmen, women and children, pushing the total number of people the extremists have killed from the tribe in recent days to more than 200.

Sheik Naim al-Gaoud, a senior figure in the Al Bu Nimr tribe, says the militant group on Monday killed 29 men, four women and three children, lining them up in in the village of Ras al-Maa, north of Ramadi. He says they publicly shot each of them dead one by one. He says that 120 families are still trapped there.

An official with the Anbar governor's office corroborated the account of Monday's killings. He spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to brief journalists.
