A 19-year-old woman who escaped from being a "sex slave" for the Islamic State said that the terrorist who "owned her" was an American citizen who boasted of regularly easily traveling to the United States to visit his family.
"He showed me pictures of his family — he had a girl and a boy," the Yazidi woman, known as Nada, told The Daily Mail in an interview
published on Tuesday. She was captured in August 2014 and sold as a sex slave in October. "He said his family were not around, that they were far away."
She was referring to Abu Abdullah al-Amriki, 23, who told her that he had converted to Islam four years ago and then went to join ISIS.
Nada, who was captured in northern Iraq, is now in the United States. She is giving testimony to the FBI to help the agency capture the terrorist, the Mail reports.
Her religion is Yazidi, which includes elements of Christianity and Islam. ISIS considers Yazidis "devil-worshippers," according to the Mail.
She also said that the jihadist helped plan and carry out ISIS attacks.
"Many guests were coming, and he was always explaining things to them," Nada told the Mail. "He was drawing maps of the fighting.
"He was telling everyone how to fight, about how to make an ambush."
Al-Amriki always carried an AK47 rifle, a pistol — and a vial of poison to kill himself if he got caught, Nada said.
"There were also sniper rifles in the house, lying around," she said. "He also carried a policeman's stick, which he used to beat me and the boy [another prisoner] with. He also slapped the boy."
According to the report, Nada's story is virtually identical to that of a woman who was recently interviewed by CNN
under the name of "Bazi."
The women appear to be describing the same man, the Mail reports.
