Iraqi police find 2 mass graves in Islamic State-free Ramadi

BAGHDAD – Iraqi police on Tuesday unearthed two mass graves in the western city of Ramadi, with bodies of about 40 people killed by Islamic State militants during the militant Sunni group’s reign of terror in the city, officials said.

The officials said IS militants who were captured and arrested after Iraqi forces routed the extremists from the Anbar provincial capital led authorities to the site of the mass graves, inside the city’s soccer stadium. Bodies of women and children were among those found in the two graves, along with bodies of men in civilian clothes, said the officials.
