Thousands of Iraqi women and girls who survived rape and other sexual violence committed by extremists should receive care, protection and justice.

Furthermore, children born to them as a result of such violence should not face a life of discrimination and abuse.

The appeal was made in a report launched this week by the UN human rights office, OHCHR, and the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI).
