Heart-Breaking Stories from Mosul

This morning, I listened to The Daily, a podcast by the New York Times, which featured a story from Rukmini Callimachi out of Mosul, Iraq. After Mosul was liberated, Callimachi and Andrew Mills, a producer, interviewed a young woman named Souhayla about the 3 years she spent in captivity by the Islamic State. She shares what happened to her as well as to other women also held captive. The story will absolutely break your heart. I encourage you to listen.
