Experiencing Interruptions?

The Yezidi Tragedy

We are on the ground at the Syrian-Iraqi border investigating the fate of hundreds of missing Yazidis who have not returned yet. We talk face to face with those who suffered under ISIS and those who survived its atrocities. We also talk with those who are still searching for members of their families.
We investigate a complex network trafficking Yazidis and shed light on the different elements of this network and how they are negotiating on people’s lives who are waiting for someone to free them in exchange for thousands of dollars. We hold exclusive interviews with smugglers, middlemen, and people, to find out the size of the sums required in exchange for saving those who are still in captivity.
