IRAQI militant group Army of Ansar al-Sunna said it killed what it
called a drug dealer in the northern city of Mosul and posted a video
of the shooting on its website today.

The video showed a man standing in front of a banner bearing the
group's name and holding packets of pills in his hands.

"My name is Hussein Ali Hussein, also known as Hussein Haya, and I
sell narcotics," the man said before he was blindfolded and shot in
the back of the head.

The Sunni Muslim group, which has claimed several attacks and
kidnappings in Iraq, has said that the country should be governed by
Islamic sharia law and blasted planned national elections this month
as an "infidel" practice.
