ISIS Video Shows 16 Kurdish Fighters in Cages

The Islamic State (ISIS) has released its latest video, this time showing 16 Kurdish peshmerga fighters, two Iraqi army officers and three policemen from Kirkuk clad in orange jumpsuits and held captive inside of individual cages. The camera focuses on a bearded man who warns the Kurds against challenging ISIS, followed by scenes of the caged men loaded on pickup trucks being paraded through the streets of a town. The Kurdish fighters had been captured on January 31 when ISIS was unsuccessful in trying to overtake the city of Kirkuk.
