Former Yazidi slave girl flees Germany after being confronted by her ISIS captor-turned refugee
A Yazidi teenager enslaved by Islamic State who sought asylum in Germany has moved back to Iraq after being confronted by her former ISIS captor, who had registered as a refugee in Stuttgart.
Ashwaq Ta’lo said that she was stopped by Abu Humam – a Syrian ISIS guard who had purchased her for $100 – while walking home in Stuttgart.
“I froze when I looked at his face carefully,” she told Bas News, a Kurdish agency. “It was Abu Humam, with the same scary beard and ugly face.”
She said that during her unexpected encounter with her former captor, Humam told her: “I am Abu Humam and you were with me for a while in Mosul. And I know where you live, with whom you live, and what you are doing.”
She recorded a video detailing the encounter.
