BAGHDAD - More than 2,400 Iraqis, most of them civilians, were killed in June as Sunni militants swept through the north triggering the country's worst violence in years, the United Nations said on Tuesday.

 

Sunni insurgents led by al-Qaeda offshoot the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which now calls itself the Islamic State, have seized swathes of territory over the last three weeks, including northern Iraq's largest city Mosul.

 

The United Nations said "acts of violence and terrorism" killed at least 2,417 Iraqis and wounded 2,287 more in June. Of those killed, 1,531 were civilians, it added. (Reuters)
