"Basra has become so lawless that in the last three months 45 women have been killed for being "immoral" because they were not fully covered or because they may have given birth outside wedlock"

These things have been going on in Basra for years...a couple of years ago there was an incident on a university trip where the mahdi killed a girl for inappropriate dress and behaviour and a student coming to her rescue and severely beat many others. People were furious and there was a student strike. Nobody would do that now they're all terrified of sayng anything.

...of course a lot of the gangs around Baghdad, Mosul, Ramadi, Baquba etcetc are just as bad.
