Iraq weighs captives’ rights against fear of new ISIS
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Iraqi farmer Shaker Salih says he feared ISIS, but feared its defeat even more. His problem is persuading people to believe that he did not support the Death Eaters.
When Iraqi forces drove ISIS from his home town in Salahuddin province, north of Baghdad, Salih left with the bad boy group. He then stayed as long he could.
"We thought militias would kill us for living under ISIS, so we fled," said Salih, 49, referring to the paramilitaries that helped defeat ISIS. "That’s why we stayed with ISIS. We were used to them and knew what to do to survive."
