The abduction and killing of scores of Sunni civilians in eastern Iraq this month and attacks on their property by Iranian-backed Shi'ite militiamen could constitute a war crime, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said Sunday.ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks which it said had targeted Shiites.HRW cited Sunni residents of Muqdadiya who said the militias were behind the attacks on their houses, mosques and people.The militias rejected the casualty figures and said the attacks on Sunnis aimed to stir sectarian tension in Diyala, which lies between Baghdad and the Iranian border and has a mixed population of Shiites and Sunnis.
