Nobel Peace Prize winner Murad urges world to fight genocide

Iraqi Nobel Peace Prize winner Nadia Murad called on Monday for the world to do more to fight genocide and sexual violence.

In her first news conference since accepting the award she said she feels obligated to use her voice to defend the rights of persecuted people around the world.
The 25-year-old Murad was among thousands of young women from the Yazidi minority who were kidnapped and enslaved in 2014 by Daesh. She says she is honored to be a Nobel recipient, but says much more needs to be done to help Yazidis forced from their homes.
Murad was speaking at the National Press Club in Washington.
She was awarded the peace price Friday along with Dr. Denis Mukwege of Congo.
