The New York Times has introduced a documentary audio series that follows Rukmini Callimachi, who covers terrorism for The Times, on her quest to understand ISIS. Today, as a special episode of “The Daily,” we offer Chapter 9, Part 1 of “Caliphate,” in which Rukmini speaks to an ISIS detainee who challenges her to find the girl he enslaved.
The last episode of “Caliphate” will publish in the series’s own feed next Thursday, June 21, and as a bonus installment of “The Daily” next Saturday, June 23. New York Times subscribers can listen to that episode now at nytimes.com/caliphate.
This episode includes disturbing language and scenes of graphic violence.
