Yazidi girl set herself on fire to become undesirable to ISIS rapists

‘Their voice was in my ears, I was so scared’: Yazidi teenager raped by ISIS militants reveals how she doused herself in petrol and set herself on fire to look ‘undesirable’ in case Islamist fighters came for her again

In this July 28, 2016 picture, 17-year-old Yazidi girl Yasmin shows her hands at her home in Germany. After escaping the clutches of Islamic State, Yasmin, a  Yazidi girl, was so traumatized by her captivity that she poured gasoline on herself and set it alight -  hoping to render herself no longer desirable to the extremists. Two years later, she’s being treated in Germany not only for her physical wounds, but for the psychological damage that led her to her act of desperation. (AP Photo/Michael Probst)
