Islamic State terrorists have burned to death 45 people in the western Iraqi town of al-Baghdadi, local authorities said Tuesday.

A local police chief, Col. Qasim al-Obeidi, told BBC News that he believed some of those murdered belonged to security forces.

He said he did not know exactly who those killed were or why they were burned to death. Al-Obeidi’s report could not be confirmed, according to the BBC.

ISIS captured much of the town, near the al-Asad air base about 100 miles west of Baghdad, last week.

Al-Obeidi said a compound that housed the families of security personnel and local officials was now under attack by ISIS jihadists.Read_More_button
