2110 GMT: Islamist Faction Executes Pro-Regime Militia in Raqqa
Graphic video posted on YouTube today shows the execution of three men, claimed to be pro-regime militia, in the main square of the city of Raqqa.
Before the execution, a man reads out a statement declaring the execution to be in response to the mass killing of residents of the coastal town of al-Bayada, near Baniyas, earlier this month.
The man signs off the statement with a reference to the "Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham".
The identity of the faction is unclear as is any affiliation with large Islamist groups such as Jabhat al-Nusra, which has been prominent in the takeover of Raqqa.
Residents of Raqqa have rallied tonight in protest against the executions.
