The Islamic State has published the prices that captured Christian and Yazidi women and children are to be sold for, according to Barnabas Aid.

Sharia law allows Muslims to take people as slaves as part of their booty taken during jihad.

The prices for Christian and Yazidi slaves vary according to age: 40 to 50-year-old women are each sold for 50,000 dinars (£27/ €34/ $43); 30 to 40-year-olds are 75,000 dinars (£40/ €51/ $64) and 20 to 30-year-olds cost 100,000 dinars (£54/ €68/ $84).

A girl 10 to 20 years-old is to be sold for 150,000 dinars (£80/ €102/ $128) and any child aged one to nine years is 200,000 dinars (£107/ €136/ $170).

Unless the buyers are foreigners, there is a limit of three slaves to a "customer".

IS decided to control the selling of slaves due to a decrease in the market demand for these "spoils of war"; IS has also swore to execute anyone who does not abide by its imposed prices.

IS jihadists wrested control of much of central and northern Iraq during the summer, compelling at least 160,000 Christians to flee to safer areas. Christians remaining under Islamist rule must pay a per capita tax demanded from non-Muslim subjects, convert to Islam, leave or be killed.
