“Hollywood star Angelina Jolie today told the Houses of Parliament that ISIS is using rape as the ‘centrepoint of their terror’ as she warned of the destruction caused by sexual violence in conflict zones. The actress and human rights activist spoke of the harrowing moment she met girls as young as seven who had been brutally raped in war zones. Jolie, who is giving evidence to a Lords committee, said jihadist fanatics in the ‘most aggressive terrorist group in the world’ were using sex attacks as a ‘very effective weapon’.She said the use of rape by ISIS as a ‘policy’ was a new horror that the world had not seen before and urged a ‘very, very strong response’ to the terror group in Iraq and Syria.”
