An 18-year-old Yazidi girl, now being taken care of in Germany, burned her entire face and body last year while being kept as a sex slave by the Islamic State terror group in Iraq, looking to make herself "undesirable," so the militants would stop raping her.
The Associated Press reports that the girl, identified as Yasmin, was 17 and living in an IS camp when she decided to douse herself in gasoline and set herself on fire, which burned away her hair, nose, lips and ears.
Yasmin is one of 1,100 women, mainly of the Yazidi religious minority, who are receiving medical and psychological care in Germany for the ordeals they have suffered, The Christian Post reported earlier this year. more >>
Iraqi President Fuad Masoum has announced that the government will execute 36 terrorists from Islamic State who have been convicted of killing 1,700 people held captive after promising that they would be sent back to their families.

The Islamic State terrorist group has displayed yet another one of its gruesome methods of public execution, killing six men in Iraq accused of collaborating with the U.S.-led coalition and Kurdish forces by boiling them to death in vats of tar.
As IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL) has utilized various brutal and heinous styles of public execution in order to frighten people within its strongholds so that they won't dare challenge the authority of the group's sovereignty, IS leaders recently seem to have taken a liking to boiling their helpless victims to their demise.
After the militant group executed seven of its own jihadi soldiers who fled the battlefield in Iraq last month by tying them up and boiling them alive in a giant cauldron of water, an unamed source told Iraqi News that IS recently sentenced six men to death and boiled them to death in tar vats. more >>
The Islamic State terrorist organization keeps finding more ways to kill.
It's been reported this week that the terrorist group has not only beheaded seven people with wire — like something out of a mafia movie — it has also killed several of its own fighters by locking them in a car and poisoning them to death.
According to a local source, who spoke with Iraqi News and chose to remain anonymous, IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL) militants beheaded seven people in front of a gathering of residents in the militant group's Iraqi stronghold of Mosul on Monday. more >>
Iraqi Christians who were forced to flee their homes two years ago and are now living in refugee camps say they are determined to stay and help rebuild the country despite the risk of being killed by Islamic State militants, according to a new report.
The international nonprofit ministry Open Doors, which has supported persecuted Christians for more than 50 years, announced last week that it spent eight months consulting with church leaders in Iraq and Syria to release a report called "Hope for the Middle East" in collaboration with Middle East Concern and the University of East London.
The report, which will be launched in the British Parliament on Oct. 12, documents "the contributions that Christians have made to the region and looked at healthcare, business, culture and welfare across the centuries," and will include recommendations for how the British government can effectively speak and act on behalf of the church in the Middle East. more >>
