Lamiya Aji Bashar, an 18-year-old Yazidi girl who escaped her Islamic State group enslavers, talks to The Associated Press in northern Iraq in this May 5, 2016, photo. During more than a year of being passed from one militant to another, Bashar attempted to flee many times. On her fifth attempt, in March, she finally reached fighters in a Kurdish-controlled region, a safe haven for Yazidis, but only after a mine exploded, killing two girls fleeing with her and leaving Bashar's face scarred and blinding her in one eye.
