Almost nothing is known about what happened to Christina since her abduction, but her family assumes she was taken to Mosul and is praying she will be found among the tens of thousands of people now fleeing the city.On Aug. 22, 2014, Daesh instructed all remaining Christians to gather at a local hospital for medical tests, and Nuh and her husband obeyed.The militants, whom Nuh identified as local Arabs, searched the group of around 30 Christians for valuables, which they took, and separated four members of the group before corralling the rest onto the bus.Nuh sat with Christina on her lap and was breast-feeding her when one of the militants came up and wrenched the girl away.That was the last time Nuh saw her daughter.In the days after she was taken, Christina's parents called local Arabs with links to Daesh who told them she had been placed with a family and was in safe hands.
