Testimony of a Massacre
Apr 15, 2016
Some allege that in certain areas of Iraq, anti-ISIS forces may have killed as many Sunnis as ISIS has. In 2014, the Sabar family—Sunnis from Iraq’s Anbar province—fled ISIS-controlled territory for Baghdad. Three months after arriving, part of the family was massacred by Shiite militiamen. This is the story of what happened the night of the killing. For more on this story, read “The Hell After ISIS” in The Atlantic’s May issue.
