The torture was revealed by an Iraqi MP speaking on Egyptian television, and translated by MEMRI. MP Vian Dakhill appeared visibly repulsed as she detailed the woman’s unimaginable treatment. She said: “One of the women whom we managed to buy from ISIS said that she was held in a cellar for three days without food or water.
“Afterwards, they brought her a plate of rice and meat. She ate the food because she was very hungry.
“When she was finished they said to her ‘we cooked your one-year-old son that we took from you, and this is what you just ate’.” At this point the journalist carrying out the interview with Ms Dakhill had to pause and wipe away tears.
