In Iraq, Nadia Murad delivered a speech to high-level Iraqi officials, just days after she received this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.
Nadia Murad: “I come to Baghdad carrying the Nobel Peace Prize to say to all Iraqis that we are all victims of terrorism and Daesh (Islamic State) and their blasphemous minds. So, I call upon you to act as one confronting your enemy. I come to Baghdad to appeal to the new government to be a national government for all Iraqis regardless of their religion, ethnicity and language.”
Nadia Murad is a 25-year-old Yazidi Kurdish human rights activist from Iraq. She was kidnapped by the Islamic State and repeatedly raped as she was held as a sex slave for almost three months.
