The girl's testimony was shared by British Conservative MP Fiona Bruce earlier this week, after members of Parliament voted unanimously to declare IS' treatment of Christians and Yazidis a genocide, and refer the issue to the United Nations Security Council.
Bruce did not reveal the name of the girl, but said that she witnessed her own father and brother killed in front of her when IS attacked her community. more >>
