  • Sex, drugs and abuse: Yazidi teen describes IS slave market

    Kidnapped, beaten, sold and raped: the IS militant group is running an international market in Iraq where Christian and Yazidi women are sold as sexual slaves, a teenager who escaped has said. Jinan, 18, a Yazidi, was captured in early 2014 and held by Islamic State jihadists for three months before she managed to flee, she said on a visit to Paris ahead of the Friday publication of a book about her ordeal. Seized as IS fighters swept through northern regions inhabited by the Yazidi religious minority, Jinan was moved around between several locations before being bought by two men, a former policeman and an imam. In the book, Jinan describes how once, in Mosul, she was led into "a massive reception hall with large columns... dozens of women were gathered there".

  • Pakistan has lost global support on Kashmir: ex Pak envoy

    Pakistan no longer enjoys global support on the Kashmir issue and cannot get backing for a referendum in the region from the UN Security Council, former Pakistani envoy to the US Husain Haqqani has said. “Kashmir is an emotive issue in Pakistan because of the failure of its leaders to inform their people that Pakistan no longer enjoys international support on the matter,” Haqqani wrote in a recent article that was also posted on the website of the US-based think tank Hudson Institute. “What most Pakistanis do not know is that the last UN Security Council resolution on Kashmir was passed in 1957 and Pakistan could not win support for a referendum in Kashmir today if it asked for a new vote at the UN,” he added.
