These new images of this barbaric act show the blindfolded men kneeling in the center of what appears to be a city center, most definitely a public place and in the open broad day light traffic with a crowd of people looking on as a "masked executioner" stands by with a long, rusty blade.
An elderly man first uses a microphone to read to the crowd from his notes that seems to "him" is the crime and judgement , the executioner then steps forward with the blade calmly above the men's heads in the unnamed city in northern Iraq.
What manner of madness could this be?
According to Daily Mail, accompanying captions said the trio were then beheaded - two for engaging in homosexual acts and the third for alleged blasphemy - but there were no images released of the actual beheading.
The jihadist group, which controls swathes of Iraq and neighboring Syria, has carried out hundreds of barbaric executions as it has imposed its brutal version of Islamic law, many of which are photographed or videotaped.
