After claim of Iraqi massacre, U.S. begins pullout from embassy

The United States announced Sunday that it was removing an undisclosed number of workers from the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. The announcement came as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) claimed to have executed 1,700 Iraqi soldiers, all of them Shiite Muslims who’d been captured last week.
