U.N.: ISIS selling kids
(CNN)ISIS is subjecting Iraqi children to a series of horrors, including torture, abduction and putting price tags on them for sale as slaves, the United Nations said.
In a shocking report released this week, the world body accused ISIS of increasingly using children in its bloody campaign of terror.
"We have had reports of children, especially children that are mentally challenged, who have been used as suicide bombers, most probably without them even understanding what has happened or what they have to expect," said Renate Winter, expert on the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child.
In one video, she said, children as young as 8 are getting training to become soldiers.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says he can't sleep because of Super Bowl's final play
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll isn't sleeping well these days. Carroll and his offensive coaching staff made the infamous decision to pass the ball from New England's 1-yard line in the final seconds of Super Bowl XLIX, resulting in Russell Wilson throwing a game-ending interception.
While Carroll calls himself an optimist, he admitted to some sleepless nights in the aftermath of the Super Bowl. "I wake up and can't stop thinking about it,’’ he said.
"The sleep part works because you're so worn out after the six months of the season that you can't help but fall asleep. But it's the waking up … and getting back to sleep [that] is the challenge."
Carroll is one of three coaches to win both an NCAA championship and a Super Bowl, accomplishing the feat with the USC Trojans in 2003 and 2004, and the Seahawks in 2013. However, Carroll has also been on the short end of a few all-time games, including the 2006 Rose Bowl and Sunday's Super Bowl. The latter might sting worse, considering his play call is the source of controversy.
Still, Carroll defends the decision despite the finish:
"It’s the worst result of a call ever,'' Carroll said. "The call would have been a great one if we'd caught it. It would have been just fine and nobody would have thought twice about it. We knew we were going to throw the ball one time in the sequence somewhere, and so we did, and it just didn't turn out right."
For Seattle, it will attempt to rebound from the setback with a third straight trip to the Super Bowl in the 2015-16 campaign. For Carroll, he is trying to move on. After the game, he found himself crying in the aftermath of the brutal loss.
"Just, lying in bed with [my wife] Glena,’’ he said. "Like, in the middle of the night, you know? 4:05 in the a.m. That’s what happened. That was my opportunity to go ahead and visit it."
