ISIL fighters' families struggle in Iraqi society

A human rights group says that families with ties to ISIL are facing collective punishment - which is a war crime.

    In Iraq, people are living with fear and stigma because of their ties to ISIL.

    Families with links to ISIL have found it difficult to obtain identity cards, restricting their ability to move freely, work, put their children in school and apply for welfare benefits. Human rights groups say these families are even denied food donations by tribal leaders.
