Washington: The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant is reportedly selling its sex slaves online in a bid to raise funds.

On May 20, a post on Facebook showing a picture of a girl was attributed to an Islamic State fighter who calls himself Abu Assad Almani. The post read: "To all the bros thinking about buying a slave, this one is $8,000."

The same man posted a second image a few hours later: "Another sabiyah [slave], also about $8,000," the posting reads. "Yay, or nay?"

 

The photos were removed within hours by Facebook, reported the Washington Post.

Earlier, the New York Times said that the ISIS is using several forms of contraception to maintain its supply of sex slaves.

 

The New York Times reported that Islamic State used “oral and injectable contraception, and sometimes both” to make sure that the women did not become pregnant.

Hundreds of women are thought to be held as sex slaves by the Islamic State.
