UN says ISIS tortures Iraqi children and sells them as slaves

United Nations in a new report is accusing Islamic State terror group (ISIS) of torturing Iraqi children, abducting and putting on tag price on them for sales as slaves.

"We have had reports of children, especially children that are mentally challenged, who have been used as suicide bombers, most probably without them even understanding what has happened or what they have to expect," said Renate Winter, expert on the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child.

"Children of minorities have been captured in places where the so-called ISIL has its strength, have been sold in market with taps, price tags on them, have been sold as slaves," Winter said.

There have been reports of torture of children, she said, urging Iraq to protect their children nationwide.
