Mass grave of women too old to be Islamic State sex slaves found

Kurdish forces that liberated Sinjar, Iraq from the Islamic State caliphate made a ghastly discovery.

From the Telegraph:
They discovered two graves. The first – containing the corpses of older women – was found west of the city's centre, near the Sinjar Technical Institute. The second was ten miles west, and is believed to contain men, women and children. It is rigged with explosives and deliberately difficult to access.

The Kurdish government team will analyse the bodies in an attempt to uncover the grim story of what happened here.

But let’s be frank: it is not difficult to guess.

Over the past year, Islamic State forces have kidnapped thousands of young Yazidi women to use as sex slaves. Now we know what happened to those not deemed "attractive enough" for them.
It's a good thing that ISIS is "contained," according to President Obama.
