Security forces recovered eight dumped bodies near the village of Sarha, on the border between Diyala and Salah ad Din provinces. Six of the mutilated bodies are believed to belong to security personnel who were last seen alive in a video released by Islamic State militants late last week. The government was given three days to release imprisoned Sunni females or the hostages would be executed. The women were not freed. The increasing presence of the Islamic State militants in Kirkuk and Diyala provinces have reportedly caused several villages to be evacuated. Authorities in Salah ad Din province also warned residents that fresh attacks are growing concern.
