A group of girls were killed by ISIS fighters in Iraq, after they refused to become sex slaves.

The girls had been ordered to accept temporary marriages before being executed in front of their family members in Mosul.

The killings began after ISIS fighters began selecting women, and forcing them to marry and be sex slaves. At least 250 girls have so far been executed.

In several instances the women’s family members have also been executed for failing to convince them to marry ISIS fighters.

In August, 19 women were killed in Mosul, after refusing to have sex with ISIS fighters while about 500 women and girls were abducted and sexually abused.
