Traumatized And Vulnerable To Abuse, Orphans From Mosul Are 'Living In Another World'

In this article and accompanying radio piece, NPR sheds light on the issues facing children who have lost one or both parents as a result of an ISIS attack in Mosul, Iraq and other attacks around the country. "There are no reliable statistics showing exactly how many civilians were killed in the battle for Mosul. But there are partial records showing that thousands of orphans were left behind," says the article. "While many of the orphaned children have been absorbed into the families of relatives who care for them, some are left to fend for themselves."
