Middle Eastern militant group ISIS is reportedly not only taking children hostage, but a new report details they're abusing and torturing them too.
The report, released Tuesday by Human Rights Watch, consists of stories by four Kurdish children from the besieged city of Kobani who were taken by ISIS five months ago and only recently set free.
According to the report, there were a total of 153 Kurdish boys between the ages of 14 and 16 who were kidnapped on a return trip to Kobani. ISIS released around 100 girls who were traveling with the boys within a few hours of their capture.
