Iraq: 'Isis enjoy disfiguring Islam'

The BBC's Paul Adams talks to the people praying for co-existence between Sunnis and Shias, rejecting Isis' interpretation of Islam and its use of jihad.

"Those people enjoy disfiguring Islam," said one man at a Sunni mosque in a neighbourhood of Baghdad. "We don't have hatred for non-believers, we all want to stop the bloodbath of Muslims and non-Muslims."

Among those at the mosque were several refugees from areas of conflict.

The bombing of Fallujah was "the government's doing", claimed one man. "To be clear, there was no Isis there, it was just tribesmen demanding their rights."
