Topic: Shi'ite fighters leave Tikrit after looting: Iraqi officials


Almost all Shi'ite paramilitaries had left Tikrit on Saturday after locals complained that some fighters had spent several days looting the Sunni city after helping retake it from Islamic State. "Most of the (paramilitaries) were removed from the city," said Ahmed al-Kraim, the head of the council of Tikrit and its province Salahuddin. The rampage of theft and burning began on Wednesday, within hours of the Iraqi government declaring that security forces and Shi'ite paramilitaries had recaptured the city from Islamic State (IS) after a month-long battle.
