FILE – In this file photo taken Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2014, a 15-year-old Yazidi girl captured by the Islamic State group and forcibly married to a militant in Syria sits on the floor of a one-room house she now shares with her family after escaping in early August, while speaking in an interview with The Associated Press in Maqluba, a hamlet near the Kurdish city of Dahuk, 260 miles (430 kilometers) northwest of Baghdad, Iraq. Hundreds of women have been captured by the group, enslaved and sold, many have been subjected to sexual violence and others have been stoned for adultery. (AP Photo/Dalton Bennett, File)
