ISIS insurgents in Iraq have carried out mass executions, abducted women and girls as sex slaves, and used child soldiers, in what may amount to systematic war crimes that demand prosecution, the United Nations said Thursday.At least 9,347 civilians have been killed and 17,386 wounded so far this year through September, well over half of them since the Islamist insurgents began seizing large parts of northern Iraq in early June, the report said.In a single massacre on June 12, the report said, 1,500 Iraqi soldiers and security officers from the former U.S. Camp Speicher military base in Salahuddin province were captured and killed by ISIS fighters.
