  • 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.

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".
