A Yazidi teenager who was repeatedly raped by ISIS militants has revealed how she set herself on fire in a refugee camp because she thought the Islamists were coming for her again.
Yasmin, 18, fled her captors after a week of torture and abuse and made it to a refugee camp in northern Iraq.
But the mentally scarred teenager thought she heard the barbaric fighters outside her tent so decided to douse herself in petrol and set herself on fire in an attempt to make herself undesirable.
The flames burned her hair, hands and face – peeling away her nose, lips and ears – and left her physically disfigured.
