The Islamic state group has accelerated killings of former policemen and army officers, apparently fearing they might join a potential internal Sunni uprising against its rule. Such killings, including the deadly attack on police Col. Mohammed Hassan and his son in mid October, have accelerated in recent days, as the extremists' opponents - Kurdish fighters and Shiite militias, backed by U.S.-led airstrikes - have made some gains, taking back several towns that the militants had overrun.

In this Friday, Oct. 31, 2014 photo, merchandise from the game "Operation" lines shelves at the Bloomingdale, Ill. home of John Spinello, the game's creator. Spinello is finding out how much people love the 50-year-old game after friends raised funds beyond their expectations in an online campaign in October 2014. He invented the buzzing game as a college student and sold the concept for $500 to a toy invention firm. The game was later licensed to Milton Bradley. But Spinello never got any royalties from the game or merchandise. Now he can't afford the $25,000 for oral surgery. (AP Photo/Carrie Antlfinger)
