ISIS have released photographic evidence of a series of horrific executions which includes throwing people from tall buildings, stoning people to death, tying them to makeshift metal crosses & shooting them to death. Full report from UK DailyMail below...
Two men were hurled from the top of a tower block, two more were crucified in front of a baying crowd and a woman was stoned to death in the latest series of horrific executions by ISIS.

Charges found against the accused were announced by a masked Islamic State fighter, using a small handheld radio. Reading from a list, he declares the men are guilty of engaging in homosexual activities and should be punished by death, in accordance with Islamic State’s radical interpretation of Sharia law.

Their blindfolds appear to have partially slipped from their eyes, allowing them to possibly see the surrounding hostile crowd.
Two masked IS fighters, dressed in khaki military fatigues are photographed standing behind the two crucified men. Upon drawing their pistols, the fighters shoot the two alleged bandits in cold blood. Their motionless bodies remain tied to the metal crosses to the delight of the all male crowd.
It is not the first time Islamic State have released photographic evidence of the horrific execution of homosexuals in Iraq. In December 2014, photos emerged on social media showing a man, accused of being homosexual, being thrown to his death from a rooftop by eight IS fighters.

|They were executed in front of the crowd after the IS fighter proclaimed them guilty of engaging in homosexual activities and that they should be punished by death, in accordance with Islamic State’s radical interpretation of Sharia law|

The final two photos show the burqa clad woman being stoned to death by a horde of Islamic State militants, hurling large rocks at the woman.
Lying on the ground surrounded by a pile of rocks, her bright red socks are still visible. An old piece of blue tarpaulin was then used to cover the dead woman’s body as the militants disperse from the horrific scene.
It appears the stoning was not carried out at the public execution site like the city’s main square. Instead, she appears to have been stoned in a quieter residential area, away from the baying crowd.
