An Iraqi army division trained by American forces summarily executed prisoners in west Mosul, Human Rights Watch said Thursday, calling for U.S. assistance in suspending the unit.The latest report of executions comes after the release of videos allegedly shot in the Mosul area that appeared to show Iraqi forces executing one detainee and brutally beating others. Earlier in July, HRW found a series of videos posted online that appeared to show other abuses by Iraqi forces in the Mosul area.Daesh overran Mosul and swathes of other territory in the summer of 2014, but Iraqi forces backed by U.S. led air strikes have since regained much of the territory they lost.
