The Islamic State has released a chilling new video showing the execution of four Shiite prisoners by burning in Iraq.
The four men are accused of being members of the Shiite Popular Resistance Committees. They are forced to confess for the camera before the execution.
They are suspended from a frame with ropes and a fire lit underneath. Islamic State music accompanies the executions.
The killings are believed to be revenge attacks for a video circulated last week of a Shiite militia roasting a fighter accused of allegiance to ISIS over an open pit.
The video is entitled Punish Them with the Same Harm They Have Caused You, a verse from the Quran alluding to vengeance.
As the video was released news broke that ISIS blew up the Temple of Bel in Palmyra. It was considered to be the most important temple at the site and was the second to be destroyed, following the destruction of the Temple of Baalshamin last week.
