The Yazidis are an ancient religious minority who combine Zoroastrian, Christian, Manichean, Jewish and Muslim beliefs. IS, which views the Yazidis as devil worshippers, killed more than 3,000, enslaved 7,000 Yazidi women and girls and displaced most of the 550,000-strong community from its ancestral home in northern Iraq.

Thikran Kamiran Yousif, 22, visits his father's grave in Kojo, Iraq February 7, 2021. Yousif, now 22 and living in Germany, is still haunted by the massacre that claimed his father, brother, grandfather and aunt. "The most painful moment was when they separated me from my father. That was the last time I saw him," Yousif told Reuters. "To be able, after seven years, to bury (these people) where they were killed... means so much to us." His other slain relatives have not yet been identified.

Thikran Kamiran Yousif, 22, carries a coffin with the remains of his father in Kojo, Iraq February 6, 2021. During the year-and-a-half he spent in the hands of IS, Yousif was moved around several times, used as a human shield in Mosul and forced to attend an IS-run Koranic school, where he was indoctrinated with the group's teachings on violent jihad. "They taught us that killing Yazidis is allowed," he said. "They worked on our minds."

Thikran Kamiran Yousif reacts during an interview with Reuters at his grandfather's house which was destroyed in past Islamic State militant attacks in Kojo. As bombings by the U.S.-led coalition intensified over IS-held territory in northern Iraq, Yousif feared he would be killed or forced to fight for IS. In early 2016, he fled to Iraqi Kurdistan with his mother and sister. "In the beginning it was very hard, psychologically. I was confused. I was telling myself that I should not forget what IS taught me," Yousif said.

"There is no legal architecture in place in Iraq to allow judges to conclude that the conduct of Daesh constituted an act of genocide, of crimes against humanity or war crimes," Khan said, adding that UNITAD's mandate was to provide evidence to bring the culprits to trial eventually.
