The Yazidis’ Secret Children - BBC News

It is estimated that 80% of the Yazidi women rescued from the dying days of the so-called Islamic State have had children with their jihadi captors.

They were kidnapped from the the Yazidi community five years ago, but are not allowed to return until they abandon their children born during IS-captivity.

Over the last year, BBC Persian correspondent Nafiseh Kohnavard has been following the story of one of these Yazidi women, forced to choose between her child and her community.
