GENEVA, June 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Armed militants that have established their control over the Nineveh province in Iraq have kidnapped 16 citizens of Gerogia in the province's capital Mosul, spokesman for the UN Commissioner for Human Rights Rupert Colville told journalists at a briefing.
Colville said 16 Georgian citizens employed at an Iraqi telecommunications company have been kidnapped in Mosul, adding that numerous other human rights violations have been committed by the militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) organization.
There have been reports about executions of nearly 30 civilians that worked in the police or security services, suicides of four women that, according to various reports, were either sexually assaulted or forced to marry ISIS militants, and freeing and arming prisoners.
According to UN estimates, the militants' offensive this week may have killed several hundreds of civilians, while almost a thousand of others were injured.
