The Islamic State has killed 52 men in Iraq at the al Qaim border crossing with Syria.

According to Sohaib al Rawi, governor of Iraq's Anbar province, majority of those killed were Iraqi police officers.

CNN reports that the men were shot Monday, and their deaths were confirmed by the governor's office Thursday.

ISIS had detained the victims since the militant group overran the border post last year.

ISIS has captured large areas of Iraq and Syria for what it says is its Islamic caliphate.
