Iraqi air strike on Islamic State court kills 60

Baghdad - An Iraqi government air strike on a Sharia court set up by Islamic State militants in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul killed 60 people on Wednesday, the office of the prime minister's military spokesperson said.

The Islamic State judge who ran the court was among those killed, the spokesperson said. The Sunni militants routinely hand down sentences such as beheadings.

Hospital officials and witnesses said earlier that the air strike had killed 50 people in a makeshift prison set up by the Islamic State, which seized large chunks of Iraq in June.

Iraq was better with Saddam Hussain. Thanks to USA for creating mayhem, and I hope you find the weapons of mass destruction that you were looking for.
