 Iraqi officer seeks vengeance in Mosul, where killings mount

FILE - This file photo made from undated video posted online in July, 2017 shows a man in an Iraqi Army uniform moments before shooting an unarmed man in Mosul, Iraq. Vengeance is fueling a string of extrajudicial killings of Islamic State group militants amid the fall of Mosul. One Iraqi lieutenant says he has been hunting the past three years for the two IS members he believes killed his father, and he describes interrogating one man and then shooting him. A video shows troops throwing IS suspects to their deaths. Rights groups warn that such killings will only fuel recruitment for the next-generation militant group.(AP Photo, File) FILE - This file photo made from undated video posted online in July, 2017 shows a man in an Iraqi Army uniform, moments after shooting an unarmed man in Mosul, Iraq.

But a senior Iraqi officer said his troops regularly killed men who were said to be IS among civilians fleeing the city at screening centers in and around Mosul. He spoke on condition of anonymity because of the possibility it could prompt legal repercussions.
