UN To Investigate Alleged Human Rights Abuses By ISIS

(Undated) -- A special U.N. Human Rights Council team is heading to Iraq to investigate alleged human rights violations by ISIS. During an emergency session in Geneva, U.N. officials reported mosques, shrines and other religious sites have been destroyed and members of different ethnic and religious groups have been persecuted. They went on to say children have been subjected to physical and sexual abuse during the violence. The Human Rights Council is urging the international community to intensify its efforts to protect all Iraqis.
