Ex-captive of Islamic State sheds tears on return to village in northern IraqBy Isabel Coles KOJO, Iraq (Reuters) – Nadia Murad made an emotional return on Thursday to the Yazidi village in northern Iraq where she was captured and sold as a slave by Islamic State three years ago. On her return, Murad went to see her house and emerged clutching some clothing left there since 2014. A Yazidi fighter said it belonged to Murad’s mother, who was killed during the purge because she was considered too old to be taken as a slave.
