The U.N.’s top human rights body on Monday overwhelmingly approved the Iraqi government’s request for an investigation into alleged crimes against civilians committed by the Islamic State group in its rampage across northeastern Syria and parts of Iraq. Diplomats agreed by unanimous consent to approve a nearly $1.2 million U.N. fact-finding mission at a daylong special session of the 47-nation Human Rights Council about Iraq and the extremist group. Shortly before the vote, Iraq’s human rights minister, Mohammed Shia’ Al Sudani said, “We are facing a terrorist monster,” adding his country needs the world’s support because the group “is not an Iraqi phenomenon, it is a transnational organization that is an imminent danger for all countries of the world.”
