Several hundred Yazidi captives have been killed in Iraq by Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists west of Mosul, Yazidi and Iraqi officials said Saturday, according to the BBC.

A statement from the Yazidi Progress Party said 300 captives were killed on Friday in the Tal Afar district near the city.

Iraqi Vice President Osama al-Nujaifi described the reported deaths as “horrific and barbaric”.

Thousands of members of the religious minority group were captured last year.

It is not clear how they were killed, or why this has happened now, the BBC noted. Many are reported to have been held in Mosul, the main stronghold of ISIS after the terrorists swept through large areas of northern and western Iraq, and eastern Syria in 2014.
