ERBIL — The mass killings of Sunni tribesmen battling the Islamic State have added urgency to Iraqi government efforts to support pockets of resistance against the insurgents. But distrust, a lack of financing and corruption threaten to slow the process, tribesmen and officials say.
In a flurry of meetings in recent weeks, tribal leaders have demanded Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi address problems of missing weapons and lack of support as they hold out against extremist militants in the face of mass detentions and executions. Hundreds of tribesmen have been summarily executed in the western province of Anbar over the past month, with hundreds more rounded up north of Baghdad.
