An Iraqi woman has reportedly murdered an ISIS commander who had forced her to become a sex slave. The incident was reported by a spokesman for the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) in Mosul, who said the woman had killed the terrorist known as Abu Anas on Saturday, near the city of Mosul, some three months after he had coerced her into marrying several of his fighters. The identity of the woman or what happened to her is unclear, but Russia Today reports that she is believed to be a Yazidi, a religious minority that has been targeted by the Islamic State. The extremist group has become infamous for its horrific acts against women, including rape, kidnapping, murder, and selling women on sex slave markets.
