Daesh reportedly conducted two public crucifixions in Raqqa to punish a pair of men it said were Western spies. 

Photos of the two executions were uploaded to Twitter on Wednesday by the group Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently, an activist group with sources inside Daesh's so-called "caliphate." 

The two men, Amin Sorour and Manzel Aqeel Hamad, were allegedly spying on Daesh for the US-backed coalition of countries that has declared war on the Sunni militant group. 

Daesh militants apparently tied both men to a cross in a public square in the Syrian city and shot them in the head. 

The New York-based entertainment site Heavy.com also reported that the two men were publicly crucified as punishment for their alleged spying. Heavy.com cited a terrorist channel in "Wilayat ar-Raqqa" as the source of its report, and included some more gory photos of the executions (viewer discretion is advised!) 

Militants with links to Daesh also carried out a public crucifixion in Yemen four weeks ago. The victim was a 56-year-old Indian Catholic priest named Thomas Uzhunnalil.
