    Eight family members will stand trial in Iraq on charges of joining the Islamic State group and involvement in killing 370 people in Mosul city, the Iraqi judiciary said on Wednesday.

    “The eight men, all from the same family, admitted participating in the Khasfah massacre, where they pushed several security forces and civilians into a 100-foot-wide sinkhole in Hamam al-Alil area after the Islamic State group captured the city of Mosul in 2014,” the National Iraqi News Agency (NINA) quoted spokesman for the Supreme Judicial Council Abdel-Sattar Bayraqdar as saying.

    “They are involved in the execution of 370 civilians and security forces, besides the detention of 400 people in Mosul,” he added.
