Iraqi army and Shia militia fighters say they have discovered a mass grave in Saadiya, in northeast Diyala province, containing at least 23 bodies. They believe five of the dead are Peshemerga soldiers and the remainders are Iraqi police officers. Peshmerga intelligence officials told the Iraqi army that they believed there to be a mass grave in this location, based on information obtained from ISIS prisoners. According to the Peshmerga, ISIS fighters executed the policemen and Peshmerga soldiers when they took control of Saadiya. The Iraqi army, working with the Peshmerga and Shia militias recaptured the area in November 2014.
