U.N.: ISIS Committing Genocide Against Yazidis

U.N. ISIS Committing Genocide Against YazidisThe Islamic State (ISIS) has committed the crime of genocide against the Yazidis in Syria and Iraq, seeking to destroy the ethno-religious group of 400,000 through killings, sexual slavery and other crimes, United Nations investigators said on Thursday.

“The genocide of the Yazidis is ongoing,” the independent investigators said in a report, which urged major powers to rescue at least 3,200 women and children still held by ISIS and to refer the case to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for prosecution.
