I hardly know how to relate this without seeming sensationalist.
As you may have noticed, I frequently read IRIN news, but normally concentrate on reports from Africa. Although it was in the Middle East section, I couldn't help but notice this awful story.
A woman's husband was captured by militants. Two days later two men came to the house and ordered her to come with them. They arrived at a house where a man told her she could save her husband's life if she had sex with him.
She felt she had to comply to save her husband, and was hit when she protested. She got through the ordeal, crying silently, and praying for forgiveness. She was taken home again.
That evening her husband re-appeared, but the story becomes doubly horrifying. He said he she was dirty, he had been forced to watch, and he would divorce her. Two days later he left home, leaving her with their three children, no job and a divorce pending.
You can find greater detail in the IRIN report.
Also from IRIN, we hear that the risks from being targeted by militants in Iraq are increasing daily for women's rights activists.
