Story of Nadia Murad Who Was Captured, Tortured And Raped By ISIS
Nadia Murad, 21, was captured by ISIS fighters in her home town of Sinjar in Northern Iraq and was then sold into sexual slavery. Miss Murad is from the Yazidi community. Thousands of Yazidi women were taken from their homes by ISIS barbarians and sold into sexual slavery.
Miss Murad had the bravery to speak out at Cairo University in Egypt about her ordeal.
“When Daesh [the Arabic name for ISIS] entered my village, they killed children, the old and young men.The next day, they killed the old women and led the young girls, including me, to Mosul. In Mosul, I saw thousands of Yazidi women where they were distributed to their slave masters. There I saw a huge Daeshi, who wanted to take me. I implored to another man to take me instead when I saw he was smaller, but he turned out later to be one of the worst people I’ve ever seen.”
