A new United Nations human rights report says that members of the terror group ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) are literally putting price tags on abducted women and girls to sell them as merchandise in a major Iraqi city, the Yahoo News website reports today (October 4, 2014).
"An office for the sale of abducted women was opened in the al-Quds area of Mosul city," says the report by the U.N. Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) and the Office of U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). Mosul is Iraq's second largest city, much of which is controlled by ISIS.
The report also states, "Women and girls are brought with price tags for the buyers to choose and negotiate the sale."
"Some women managed to inform UNAMI/OHCHR that they had been forced to convert [to Islam] and were to be married to ISIS fighters and would be taken to destinations unknown," says the report, which covers human rights abuses in Iraq from July to September and was released on October 2, 2014.
