Sunnis Burned Alive

Militia members took six Sunnis and burned them alive recently, according to Yahoo. Later attacks also killed 19 other Sunnis. It is reported that Iraqi soldiers at a post nearby did not intervene to stop the killing.

Many of those killed in Iraq’s sectarian violence are tortured, sometimes with electric drills, and often are decapitated, but burning victims alive is apparently something new and is likely to become more widely used now that it has been done.
