Scores of bodies of Sunni Muslim tribesmen apparently killed by Islamic State militants have been found in mass graves in western Iraq.

The graves that were found in the province of Anbar may contain between 80 and 220 bodies.

Many of the dead belong to the Al Bu Nimr tribe, which joined Iraq's Shia-dominated government in fighting IS.

It has also emerged that the group may have killed 600 prisoners at a jail in Mosul they seized in June.
