In his back pocket was an ID card: Qusay Mohammad, age 31 .The place they were found is in territory held by government forces around 20 km from the front line in Mosul, where Iraqi troops are fighting to dislodge Daesh (ISIS) militants from the last pocket of territory they control.With the information on the ID in Qusay's pocket, Reuters was able to determine that he is on a government database of 90,000 men wanted across Iraq, including suspected Daesh members.The ID also led Reuters to the village where Qusay spent most of his life, in the Shirqat district, around 50 kilometers south of the place he would die.The youngest of five brothers, Qusay dropped out of school and married his cousin Beida sometime after the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, when the village became notorious as a stronghold for insurgents.She says Qusay did his best to provide for their five young children by selling ice or fuel which he bought from filling stations and re-sold for a small margin. Two of her own brothers were killed by the militants, she said.
