The United Nations says Islamic State (IS) militants have shot and killed dozens of civilians in Mosul in recent days.  More than 100 bodies were found of a mass grave in the nearby town of Hammam al-Alil.

In a brief published on Friday detailing a series of ISIL executions and abuses, the UN’s human rights office said that 40 people were killed by the armed group on Tuesday for “treason and collaboration” with Iraqi forces and their allies closing in on the city during a major military push.

Dressed in orange jumpsuits, the bodies of the victims were hung from electrical poles in several areas around Mosul, the UN said. On Wednesday evening, ISIL reportedly shot to death a further 20 civilians in the Ghabat military base in northern Mosul, also on charges of leaking information.

“Their bodies were also hung at various intersections in Mosul, with notes stating: ‘Decision of execution’ and ‘used cell phones to leak information to the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF)’,” the UN said.

The rights office also said the mass grave in Hammam al-Alil, south of Mosul, was just one of several ISIL killing grounds.
