LONDON - Female Yazidi captives are being forced to donate blood to wounded Islamic State (IS) fighters, according to a pregnant teenager who escaped after being seized and held captive by IS militants.

The 19-year-old, identified as Hamshe, said she and her baby were held for 28 days by IS militants, who she believes killed her husband, brother-in-law and father-in-law.

She spoke to activist and former journalist Nareen Shammo as part of a BBC Arabic documentary, Slaves of the Caliphate, in which Shammo tracks captured Yazidi women and works to negotiate their release and return home to northern Iraq.
