SYRIA: ISLAMIC STATE BEHEADS FOUR FOR SORCERY, INCLUDING TWO WOMEN
June 30, 2015: Islamic State (IS) has beheaded two women in eastern Syria, the first time the jihadist group has decapitated female civilians, activists say.
The women were killed along with their husbands in the city of Deir al-Zour and the town of al-Mayadeen, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.
All four were accused of sorcery.
IS has previously decapitated the bodies of Kurdish female fighters killed in battle. The group has also beheaded men for witchcraft in Iraq. (Source: BBC News, June 30, 2015)
