Shiite militias in Iraq detained, tortured and abused far more Sunni civilians during the American-backed capture of the town of Fallujah in June than U.S. officials have publicly acknowledged, Reuters has found. More than 700 Sunni men and boys are still missing more than two months after the Daesh (ISIS) stronghold fell. All told, militia fighters killed at least 66 Sunni males and, all told, abused at least 1,500 others fleeing the Fallujah area, according to interviews with more than 20 survivors, tribal leaders, Iraqi politicians and Western diplomats.There now are more than 30 Shiite militias whose members receive government salaries.
