9-year-olds being sold for sex by ISIS, says former Yazidi sex slave

From Indiatoday.in

Held by the ISIS as a sex slave in Iraq, Nadia Murad Basee Taha, revealed how girls as young as nine are still being held by the terror group and are being assaulted by IS fighters on a regular basis.

"Imagine until now, for more than a year and a half, girls as young as nine are being rented and sold out [for sex]," says Nadia.

Nadia, who belongs to the Iraqi town of Sinjar, was held captive along with 5,000 Yazidi people. The plight of the Yazidi population in the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar is sad. The captives were forced into sex slavery by the IS and nearly 3,400 Yazidi captives are still being held by the extremists.

Nadia herself was raped in the IS's Iraqi capital of Mosul. She recalls how her mother and six brothers were killed in front of her in 2014.

In fact, ISIS has reportedly executed 19 women who refused to have sex with their fighters. ISIS militants are 'gifted' the widows of executed fighters so that they are motivated enough to continue fighting. 

21-year-old Nadia is currently campaigning in UK to ensure that the world comes together and fights against the terror group. She says she forgot about her family when she saw what was happening to other women was more difficult than death.
