The United Nations has reports of Daesh (ISIS) executing people perceived as cooperating with rebel fighters in Deir al-Zor governorate in eastern Syria, the U.N. human rights boss said on Wednesday.

Michelle Bachelet, speaking to a news conference in Geneva, voiced deep concern for 7,000 civilians who she said were trapped between Daesh militants preventing them from leaving Deir al-Zor and airstrikes by a U.S.-led coalition.
