“My name is Rozin, I’m a 17-year-old Yazidi girl living in Coventry. I came here with my family in 2008 when it became too dangerous for us in Iraq.
“More than 3,000 Yazidi women and girls have been kidnapped by ISIS [the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil)] in Northern Iraq. When I hear what has happened to these girls I cry. It is my worst nightmare. I know girls as young as 12 have been taken. If I was there now I would be so, so scared.”
This is how Rozin Khalil Hanjool’s online petition urging the UK Government to help Yazidi girls and women begins.
