The Sunni extremist group that has taken territory across Iraq has posted photos online that appear to show its fighters massacring 17,00 Iraqi soldiers.

The army personnel are pictured being led away and then lying in trenches before and after their "execution".

Iraqi military spokesman Lt Gen Qassim al-Moussawi said the pictures were authentic and depicted events in Salahuddin province, according to BBC. But the images' authenticity has not been independently confirmed.
