Islamic State militants parade captured Iraqi soldiers

Residents in Fallujah said the Islamic State has paraded Iraqi troops captured in battle earlier this week in a show of strength in the militant stronghold.

They said about 30 men in Iraqi military uniform were driven in the back of seized military vehicles through the city on Tuesday. Fallujah is about 65 kilometres west of Baghdad.

Residents said militants driving the convoy blasted songs glorifying the leader of the militant group, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as they paraded their captives.
