Three suspected Al Qaeda militants beheaded an Iraqi couple in front of the couple's children, Reuters reported Friday.

The suspected militants were reportedly related to the victims, and told a family uncle the male victim was an infidel because he wore Western-style trousers and did not pray, according to the Reuters report.

The three suspects, including two sisters, reportedly carried out the execution at an all-boys school in Jalawlah in Diyala province.
