The Daily Telegraph newspaper has published a very timely article highlighting the work of a Yazidi teenager now living in Britain in attempting to help the more than 3,000 Yazidi women and girls who have been subjected to sexual slavery by Isil.
Rozin Khalil Hanjool has created an online petition urging the UK government to help these Yazidi women and girls and to highlight their plight to the Western world. The Yazidi community is a Kurdish ethnic community in Northern Iraq and reports estimate that between 5,000 and 7,000 wome were taken by Isil last year alone.
Full details of the article are available on the Daily Telegraph website at: Isis Sexual Slavery: British Yazidi Teen Fighting to Save Her Friends” by Radhika Sanghani.
