Yazidi girls as young as eight raped as Isil sex slaves, finds report

Yazidi girls – some of them as young as eight – were raped by jihadists and then sent back to the “market” to be resold. Those that were not, watched helpless as the men dragged away their mothers and their sisters.

This is just some of the harrowing detail gathered in a Human Rights Watch investigation into the fate of thousands of Yazidi women and girls abducted by the extremists of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).
