The radical group of Islamic State (ISIS) on Tuesday executed a teenage boy in Mosul city of Iraq’s northwestern Nineveh province.
The 15-year-old boy was arrested by ISIS militants in central Mosul for listening to “western music”, according to local sources.
“ISIS jihadis publicly beheaded the boy,” the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
The victim’s body was reportedly handed over to his family on Tuesday evening. The incident has raised public outrage among Mosul’s residents.
“There was no formal decision by the Sharia Court that ban listening to western music,” the source said, adding this was the first case of its kind to be documented in Mosul.
