Al Arabiya - A shocking video of members of a Shiite militia beating a man in Salaheddine Province, north of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, has emerged on the Internet.

In the short footage, members of the Popular Mobilization, a Shiite militia, can be seen striking the man, who was not identified in the video, with various metal objects.

Alongside the Iraqi army, police, and armed tribal forces, the Popular Mobilization units account for the bulk of the manpower involved in the two-week-old operation to wrest back Tikrit from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
