Baghdad: ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi repeatedly raped US hostage Kayla Mueller during her time in the terror group's captivity, a shocking revelation made by a Yazidi girl who was held as a sex slave in the same house.
The Yazidi girl, who escaped after two months in captivity, revealed that Baghdadi had taken Kayla forcibly as his “wife” and used to sexually abuse her, according to a report in the Independent.
She added that every time the ISIS leader would visit the house, where they were kept as prisoners, Mueller would be taken away and on her return, the American aid worker would tell them that she was abused by Baghdadi.
Apart from Kayla's parents, a US official, who cannot be quoted, has confirmed the claims.
Kayla was held for a time by Islamic State financier Abu Sayyaf, who was killed in May this year during American Delta team operation, and his wife, Umm Sayyaf was captured.
Kayla and her boyfriend were kidnapped by ISIS in August, 2013 in northern Syria's Aleppo.
Earlier this year, they claimed that Kayla was killed in a Jordanian air strike in Raqa, the self-proclaimed capital of the Islamic State.
However, circumstances of her death are yet not clear.
