KUALA LUMPUR: ATROCITIES committed by the Islamic State (IS) terror group is worsening as they seem open to using anything in an effort to showcase their propaganda to the world.
Experts say that the execution methods that they have carried out on their captives, such as beheading and burning them alive, might take a back-seat to more unimaginable techniques in an effort to send the message that they mean business.
Universiti Sains Malaysia psychologist and criminologist Dr Geshina Ayu Mat Saat said that the brutality of their execution method was dependent on certain factors.
…Head of the International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research Singapore Dr Rohan Gunaratna echoed Geshina’s sentiments that the gory depictions had the most impact on those who had violent tendencies.
