UN: Yazidi genocide still going on in Syria

A UN committee of investigation announced Thursday that the massacres by the Islamic state(ISIS) against the Yazidi minority were still taking place in Syria, despite a Syrian committment to deal with the issue.

"Thousands of Yazidi men are missing while thousands of women suffer from harsh violence and rape on a daily basis," said the organization's statement, according to a report by Reuters.
