Islamic militants in Iraq have created slave markets, trading and selling women and children of Christian and Yazidi groups, according to UN investigators.

At least 2,500 women and children have been imprisoned, sexually abused and sold for around $10 each by Isis slavers.

According to the International Business Times,The slave markets in the al-Quds area of Mosul in Iraq and Raqqa in Syria have been used as a way of attracting new recruits to Islamic State, the UN said according to a Times report.

Women who were captured at the end of August managed to contact the UN, having kept hold of their mobile phones. They reported being subject to sexual assaults.

One 13-year-old Yazidi girl gave a harrowing account of what happened to her after she was abducted by Isis from her village on 3 August.

"She stated that ISIL [Islamic State] took hundreds of women who had not been able to flee to Jabal Sinjar,""The girl stated that she was raped several times by several ISIL fighters, before she was sold to a market."

One Yazidi woman was given to 10 Islamic State men.
