The self-styled Islamic State (IS) has a printed list of prices to facilitate the slave trade of women and children captured in the group’s territory.

IS Slaves being auctioned. They will be used for domestic chores and as sex slaves for soldiers.

Though rumors of such a document surfaced eight months ago, Zainab Bangura, UN special envoy on sexual violence in conflict, has now confirmed that she has seen the document, and that it is legitimate.

“The girls get peddled like barrels of petrol,” Bangura told Bloomberg. “One girl can be sold and bought by five or six different men. Sometimes these fighters sell the girls back to their families for thousands of dollars of ransom.”

Bangura said she was personally given a copy of the document during a trip to Iraq in April.

She also provided details about how the IS flesh trade operates in Iraq and Syria, saying that leaders in the organization are allowed to take first pick of captives. Those who aren’t chosen are auctioned off to wealthy locals, with the remaining captives then sold to IS fighters, Bangura said.
