A former sex slave confronted the man who detained her in a powerful encounter caught on camera.

Ashwaq Hajji Hameed was just 14-years-old when she was kidnapped, sold into slavery and abused by an ISIS member.

She managed to escape the death cult and flee Iraq to start a new life in Germany.

However, last year she was walking the streets of Stuttgart when she came face to face with Abu Humam, the man who enslaved and raped her.

The encounter left Ms Hameed wanting to leave Germany immediately and feeling like she would be “better staying in a refugee camp” in Iraq with her father.

A year on from the encounter the pair met again.

This time Humam was in custody in Iraq having been arrested, providing Ms Hameed with the opportunity to give the abuser a piece of her mind.

Ms Hameed demanded that the former ISIS fighter hold his head up and look her in the eye in an intense confrontation recorded by the Iraqi National Intelligence Service and broadcast on Iraqi TV over the weekend.

He fails to meet her gaze, instead sobbing while looking at his shoes.

“Why did you do that to me?” Ms Hameed, now 20, demands of her attacker, RTL reported.

“Why? Because I’m Yazidi?

“I was 14 years old when you raped me. Raise your head.

“Do you have a sister? Do you have feelings? Do you have any honour? I was 14 years old.

“The age of your daughter! The age of your son! The age of your sister!

“You’ve destroyed my life. You took everything from me. Everything I dreamt of.

“But now you know what torture is, what it’s like to be tortured, what loneliness is. If you had any sense, any feelings, you wouldn’t have raped me when I was 14 years old.

“I was the age of your son, the age of your daughter.”

It is unclear how Humam came to live in Germany.

Ms Hameed told police and asylum officials about the encounter, and while they identified the man from CCTV, they said there was nothing they could do because he was also registered as a refugee.

At the end of the televised confrontation Ms Hameed fainted and collapsed.

Around 550,000 Yazidis live in the Middle East, mostly in Iraq.

In 2014 ISIS attacked the Sinjar region of the country, killing thousands of Yazidi and enslaving many women.

In an interview with Iraqi station Al-Iraqiya translated into English by the Middle East Media Research Institute , Ms Hameed explained how she was kidnapped by ISIS gangs and transported to Mosul.

“I did not expect them to rape us because I was only 14,” she said of her time enslaved by Humam.

“But they restrained us with iron handcuffs and violently raped us.

“He kept promising that he would let me go but then he would rape me three times a day and beat me three or four times a day. I was just a child and didn’t know anything.”
