German defense minister meets Islamic State victims in Iraq

Germany's defense minister has met with female victims from the Yazidi minority group in northern Iraq. It was the German minister's third and final day of her inaugural tour of the Middle East.


German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer concluded her three-day tour of the Middle East on Wednesday, full of admiration for the women and girls from the Yazidi minority group in northern Iraq who were enslaved and abused by "Islamic State" militants.


"These women have witnessed unspeakable things," Kramp-Karrenbauer said.


The recently installed defense minister was wary of history repeating itself as she said: "They need more targeted help so that they are not victims of this terrorism a second time."
