    The Yazidi community in Northern Iraq was torn apart in 2014 when the ISIL group attacked their villages.

    Thousands of men were killed, while the women were forced into slavery, sparking widespread international condemnation.

    Today, most of them live in camps for the internally displaced and they say the world has abandoned them.
