ISIS Kills Women’s Rights Activist After She Criticizes Them On Facebook
ISIS has executed a women’s rights activist in the city of Mosul after she criticized them on Facebook for destroying national monuments.
Samira Salih al-Nuaimi was seized from her home on September 17 shortly after she allegedly posted messages on Facebook that were critical of the militants’ destruction of religious sites in the city.
According to the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq, al-Nuaimi was tried in a Sharia law court for apostasy, before being tortured for five days and eventually being sentenced to public execution…
Al-Nuaimi was killed on Monday, according to a statement released by the UN mission today. Her Facebook page appears to have been deleted since her death.
‘By torturing and executing a female human rights’ lawyer and activist, defending in particular the civil and human rights of her fellow citizens in Mosul, ISIL continues to attest to its infamous nature, combining hatred, nihilism and savagery, as well as its total disregard of human decency,’ Nickolay Mladenov, the UN envoy to Iraq, said in a statement, referring to the group by an alternative name.[su_csky_ad]
