A nine-year-old girl has been pregnant after being raped by at least ten IS members, writes the Toronto Star.
The girl was recently released after nearly a year in captivity by IS, where women and young girls from the Yasidi minority are known to be held as sex slaves.
Aid workers have notified the newspaper about the assaults and the consequences it had for the girl.
According to the aid workers the girl was raped by at least ten different men while she was a prisoner of IS.
- Most of them fought on the front line or were future suicide bombers who got girls as reward, a Canada-based aid worker tells the Toronto Star.
- This girl is so young that she could die if she has to give birth to a child. Even cesarean is dangerous. The abuse she has been through has left her both mentally and physically traumatized, he says.
Earlier this week, more than 200 women, children and elderly from the Yasidi sect were released near Kirkuk, in the northern part of Iraq.
Around 40,000 people were kidnapped when ISIS attacked Yasidi villages last summer.
Hundreds of them have returned, either by fleeing or being set free by ISIS.
They are in a poor health condition and show signs of having been subjected to abuse and neglect.
The nine-year-old, according to the Daily Mail, is one of those among these.
Earlier ISIS published a price list for sex with captured prisoners which even included rape of infants.
