AMAL-CLOONEY

According to the Middle East newspaper, the International human rights lawyer Amal Clooney will defend Yazidi women who have been victims of slavery and genocide by ISIL insurgents in Iraq, her law firm said on Friday.

Clooney, a barrister at Doughty Street Chambers in London, is seeking to prosecute ISIL through the International Criminal Court for their crimes against the Yazidi community.

“We know that thousands of Yazidi civilians have been killed and that thousands of Yazidi women have been enslaved,” said Clooney, who is married to actor George Clooney.
