A woman in Raqqa — the self-described capital of the Islamic State of Iraq in Syria (ISIS) — secretly recorded life in the highly repressed Syrian city for a chilling report aired on France 2.
ISIS imposes a fiercely fundamentalist form of Islam in areas under its control. Since the militants took over Raqqa last year, there have been frequent reports of brutal killings, including public executions. Human Rights Watch has accused ISIS of committing crimes against humanity. This brave woman put herself in danger by filming ISIS in Raqqa and sharing it with the media.
