Iraq is not capable of trying atrocities committed by Daesh (ISIS) during the battle for Mosul so it must find other routes to justice such as the International Criminal Court, a U.N. human rights report said Thursday. At least 2,521 civilians were killed during the nine-month battle including 741 people who were executed, the report said. Most died as a result of Daesh attacks. At least 74 mass graves have been discovered since June 2014 in areas previously held by Daesh in Iraq, the U.N. report said.
