A recent report from rights group Amnesty International said that¬†Iraqi women and girls forced into sexual slavery by so-called “Islamic” State of Iraq and Syria terrorists have committed suicide or tried to do so.

The London-based rights group said on Tuesday, women faced torture, rape, forced marriage and were “sold” or given as “gifts” to ISIL militants or their supporters in Iraq and Syria.

“Hundreds of (Iraqi) women and girls have had their lives shattered by the horrors of sexual violence and sexual slavery in ISIL captivity,” Amnesty’s Senior Crisis Response Adviser, Donatella Rovera, said in a statement.

“Many of those held as sexual slaves are children, girls aged 14, 15 or even younger,” Rovera added.
