Syria: Woman mutilated and killed by ISIS for breastfeeding under her burqa

The city of Raqqa in Syria, the so-called ISIS “capital,” has been patrolled for the past year by the all-female Al-Khansaa Brigade, a morality police most commonly used to enforce the dress codes for women, who must be covered and veiled at all times.  Social media accounts linked to ISIS have described how one woman was seen with a baby underneath her burqa and believed her to be breastfeeding.  The policewoman handed the baby to another woman and then killed the nursing mother for “violating public decency.”  It is said she was also mutilated before the killing. More at The Daily Mail.
