Islamic State (IS) group militants today shot dead 36 Sunni tribesmen, women and children, it has been claimed.

The deaths push the total number of people the extremists have killed from the tribe in recent days to more than 200.

Sheik Naim al-Gaoud, a senior figure in the Al Bu Nimr tribe, says the militant group killed 29 men, four women and three children, lining them up in in the village of Ras al-Maa, north of Ramadi.

He says they publicly shot each of them dead one by one. He says that 120 families are still trapped there.

An official with the Anbar governor’s office corroborated the account of today’s killings.
