The outgoing head of the UN team investigating crimes committed by the ISIL terror network in Iraq, was in New York this week to give his final report to the Security Council where he delivered “clear” evidence of genocide. 

Karim Khan, Special Adviser and head of UNITAD, sat down with UN News to take stock of the work his team has done, and he said there was some way to go before justice is done on behalf of the victims of crimes – such as the Yazidis - that “rip at the soul of humanity”.
