Fighters from the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isis) may be added to a list of war crimes suspects in Syria, the chief UN investigator says.

"They are good candidates for the list," Paulo Pinheiro said, referring to public executions and crucifixions carried out by the militant group.

The confidential list was revealed to the UN Security Council and reporters for the first time on Friday.

People from both sides of the three-year Syria conflict are to be included.

4. I know!

 

I decided to be classy for once and not include a snarky remark at the end, but "ya think?" was exactly what I'd had in mind.

9. The UN is putting them on a list?!

Oh, they're toast now.
You hear that, al-Baghdadi? You're on a list now. They're going to put this on your permanent record. It's going to ding your credit score. If you don't stop what you're doing, they're going to write you a stern letter. You've been warned.
