All-female Islamic State police squad tortured mother with spiked device called a ‘biter’ after she was caught breastfeeding in public

The so-called Islamic State’s all-female police unit tortured a breastfeeding mother by clamping her chest with a barbaric spiked clamp, it is claimed.

The al-Khansa brigade, the female religious police in Raqqa, the insurgency’s de facto capital in Syria, is said to use the bear trap-like device to punish women who defy their strict laws.

Opposition media group Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently claim that in one case it was used on a 24-year-old woman who was arrested while breastfeeding her baby in the city centre.
