The brutality by which this is happening knows no limits. Women, children and men are all being rounded up and beheaded. The claim is that insurgents are hitting back at government action taken against them. There are reports that they packed a football field with people and started beheading people at random. Neighbouring countries have condemned the killings and have promised to be of help. The international community have also condemned the killings as a totally unacceptable act. The last time this happened it was tribal one group against another. This time it is being attributed to Islamist State alignments through the insurgents. How this is resolved is yet to be seen. In the meantime, the horrific killing is said to go on.
The area this is happening is also heavily guarded by government troops. There are very rich deposits of gas they are making sure remains untouched. Pity that the people are not as guarded as well.
