A nine-year-old girl is pregnant after suffering horrific sexual abuse at the hands of ISIS militants in northern Iraq, aid workers report.

The Yazidi girl has recently been released after nearly a year as a prisoner in the Islamic State, where women and young girls from the religious minority are known to be kept as 'sex slaves'.

Earlier this week, more than 200 Yazidi women, children and elderly were released near Kirkuk, northern Iraq after being taken by ISIS militants last June.

Around 40,000 people were kidnapped at gunpoint when Islamic State fighters attacked Yazidi villages last summer.

Hundreds have been able to return, either by fleeing or being set free by ISIS, and the nine-year-old is among them.

According to aid workers, she was 'sexually abused by no fewer than ten men', while in captivity inside the self-proclaimed caliphate.

'Most of them were front-line fighters or suicide bombers who are given girls as a reward,' Yousif Daoud, a Canadian-based aid worker told the Toronto Star.

'This girl is so young she could die if she delivers a baby,' he added. 'Even a caesarian section is dangerous. The abuse she has suffered left her mentally and physically traumatized.' (Daily Mail)
