13 August 2014 – Two senior United Nations officials today condemned in the strongest terms the “barbaric acts” of sexual violence and “savage rapes” the armed group Islamic State (IS) has perpetrated on minorities in areas under its control.
In a joint statement from Baghdad, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Sexual Violence (SRSG) in Conflict, Zainab Hawa Bangura and the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Iraq, Nickolay Mladenov urged the immediate protection of civilians.
We are gravely concerned by continued reports of acts of violence, including sexual violence against women and teenage girls and boys belonging to Iraqi minorities.
"We are gravely concerned by continued reports of acts of violence, including sexual violence against women and teenage girls and boys belonging to Iraqi minorities,” Ms. Bangura and Mr. Mladenov said.

Isn't liberated Iraq a dream come true, I wonder how now the Liberated people in Iraq feels about US abandoning them to terrorist groups that before under Saddam it was none, perhaps Saddam and sons were despicable but what they have now is worst.
Boko Haram killed more than 5,000 civilians between July 2009 and June 2014, including at least 2,000 in the first half of 2014 alone. 650,000 people fled their homes by August 2014, an increase of 200,000 since May.
Boko Haram kill people who engage in practices seen as un-Islamic, such as drinking alcohol. In a 2009 interview, the founder of the sect, Mohammed Yusuf, asserted his belief that the theory that the Earth is round is contrary to Islamic teaching and should be rejected.
After launching a string of IED attacks against soft targets, and its first vehicle-borne IED attack in June 2011, killing 6 at the Abuja police HQ, in August of that year Boko Haram bombed the UN HQ in Abuja, the first time they had struck a Western target.
In a 2013 US report, Boko Haram was ranked as the second deadliest terrorist group in the world after the Taliban in Afghanistan. In July 2014, Nigeria was estimated to have had the highest number of terrorist killings in the world over the past year, 3477, killed in 146 attacks.

These ISIS members aren't Human like you or me. They must be from some other Planet where only Evil breeds and now they are Breeding here on Earth.
They need to be wiped out asap and I hope the Troops/Drones can do it without too much loss of Civilian Life!
