Rita Habib – one of the Christian women abducted from Qaraqosh by Daesh (ISIS) and forced into sex slavery – was finally reunited with her father. Ms Habib was transferred from Qaraqosh – the last Christian-majority town in Iraq before falling to the Islamists – to Mosul, before being moved to Syria some months later. She described the misery she faced: “I was bought and sold four times. They did evil things to us. They beat us and raped us… The worst of all was girls aged nine who were raped.” She was rescued by members of the Shlama Foundation who posed as jihadis at a Daesh slave auction and bought her for $20,000. She said: “I am very happy that after three years I reunited with my father. It is a joyous moment because he is the only family I have left”. Only seven of the women abducted from Qaraqosh have returned – the estimated numbers of those seized when the town fell range from 45 to 100s.
