WASHINGTON, Oct 13 (Reuters) - The United States has seen reports of the killing of a Kurdish politician and captured Kurdish fighters in northeastern Syria and finds these reports "extremely troubling," a State Department spokesman told Reuters on Sunday.
"We find these reports to be extremely troubling, reflecting the overall destabilization of northeast Syria since the commencement of hostilities on Tuesday," the spokesman said in emailed comments, adding that Washington condemned any mistreatment and extrajudicial execution of civilians or prisoners, and was looking further into these circumstances.
