/ 06:01 AM June 25, 2015

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) reportedly killed five prisoners in Iraq by locking them in a metal cage and drowning them in a swimming pool, a report by the Daily Mail said on Wednesday.

In a seven-minute video, Daily Mail said ISIS lowered the prisoners into a pool in Mosul “with no hope of escape.”

“Shortly afterwards the cage is lifted back out of the water, with the dying men – who are understood to have been accused of spying – seen foaming at the mouth as they lie motionless on the floor of the cage, piled on top of one another,” the report said.

Daily Mail also noted how the prisoners started praying when water started entering the cage.

The report said ISIS used expensive underwater cameras to capture the film: “Once the cage is submerged, the video cuts to high-tech underwater cameras, which—in images far too horrific to publish— show the men thrashing around until they lose consciousness and fall to the floor.” Yuji Gonzales/TVJ
