Escaped Yazidi Women Recount IS Captivity Ordeal

When militants of the Islamic State seized parts of northern Iraq six months ago, one the areas hardest hit was that of the Yazidis, an ethnic-religious minority living around Sinjar. The militants reportedly killed thousands of men and took the women and children captive. A few of the young women eventually escaped. They recounted their ordeal to VOA’s Scott Bobb in Ba’adra, 40 kilometers north of Mosul.
