ISIS Harvests Human Organs

Among the recently reported horrors perpetrated by ISIS is a trade in human organs, for which there is a lucrative black market.  Doctors have even allegedly been killed for refusing to perform the organ-harvesting operation.  The Iraqi government has asked the U.N. for help.  From the Daily Mail:
Iraq has urged the United Nations to investigate Islamic State terrorists' bloody trade in human organs after the Iraqi ambassador said doctors are being executed for not harvesting body parts.
Mohamed Alhakim claimed that dozens of bodies with surgical incisions and missing body parts have been found in shallow mass graves near ISIS stronghold Mosul over the past few weeks.
ISIS' horrifying trade in human organs, which was revealed by MailOnline last December, is just the latest way for the terrorist organisation to finance its activities, with other major sources of the group's $2 million-a-day income being the sale of oil, ransom payments, and smuggled antiques.
The ambassador claims that bodies with missing parts have been located.  Read the full story.
