The title of the article in question? “The Revival of Slavery Before the Hour,” which refers to Judgment Day, CNN noted. The fourth edition of the group’s English-language digital magazine Dabiq said that female members of the Yazidi sect, an ethnically Kurdish minority living mostly in Iraq, may legitimately be captured and forcibly made concubines or sexual slaves, CNN reported.
