ISIL’s Human Traffickers Use Facebook, WhatsApp and Telegram to Sell Slaves

“By now, ISIL’s use of social media as a recruitment tool is common knowledge. Less known is the group’s use of those same digital platforms to scout and lure sex slaves. Recently, about 100 experts from United Nations entities and affiliates, law enforcement, technology and media gathered for a two-day workshop on human trafficking in the Middle East. The end result, a U.N. University report released this month, shows ISIL has enslaved more than 5,000 Yazidis, members of a small ethnically Kurdish community in the Middle East.”
