The Canadian man saving Yazidi women from ISIS explains how rescue missions work

In August, 2014, militants of the Islamic State began a campaign of mass abductions of Yazidi women and girls—a religious minority in Northern Iraq—as part of the radical group’s introduction of systematic sexual slavery.
