What happened to 8,000 Islamic State captives?
More than 8,000 people, detained by IS when the terrorist militia controlled swathes of north and east Syria, remain unaccounted for, the New York-based watchdog said, citing figures from the Syrian Network for Human Rights.
Among them are the British reporter John Cantlie and Italian Jesuit priest Paolo Dall’Oglio.
Human Rights Watch said the Syrian government and the Kurdish authorities who now control former IS territory have so far failed to prioritise the search for the truth about what happened to the missing.
Kurdish authorities in the northeast “”rarely”” provide answers to those in search of their relatives, HRW said.
