ISIS Fighters, Having Pledged to Fight or Die, Surrender en Masse

  ISIS Fighters, Having Pledged to Fight or Die, Surrender en Masse More than 1,000 militants turned themselves in after the latest in a string of humiliating defeats in Iraq and Syria. Many claim to have been only cooks or clerks.More than a thousand Islamic State fighters passed through that room this past week after they fled their crumbling Iraqi stronghold of Hawija. Instead of the martyrdom they had boasted was their only acceptable fate, they had voluntarily ended up here in the interrogation center of the Kurdish authorities in northern Iraq.

CBS News correspondent Holly Williams has been reporting from Northern Syria that thousands of civilians are still in the ruined city, and ISIS is using them as human shields.

On the edge of Raqqa, Williams encountered a group of women who have just escaped ISIS territory. One of them revealed she's American.

South Carolina to close minimum-security prison in Rock Hill

  South Carolina to close minimum-security prison in Rock Hill South Carolina prison officials say they are closing a minimum-security prison that operates a work release program because it has fewer prisoners that fit into minimum security. Corrections Director Bryan Stirling said Tuesday that the Catawba Pre-Release Center in Rock Hill will close next month.Officials say the prison opened in 1970 with a capacity of 188 inmates and currently houses 123 prisoners.Stirling says the state needs fewer minimum-security beds because of sentencing reform and programs in other prisons designed to give inmates skills to find work when they are released.

"I'm from Kansas. I've been in Syria for five years,"  she said.

She's just 15 years old, and says she was brought to Syria by her father, a strong ISIS supporter, against her will. Because she's a minor, CBS News is not revealing her name.

"My father, of course, didn't tell us that we were coming to Syria," she said. "When it was time to get out of the car, and cross the border, he was like 'you're going to Syria,' and, yeah, it was a really big shock."

Her father was later killed, she says, leaving her to fend for herself. She's a devout Muslim, but hated ISIS.

"We were prisoners. We were just quiet. Shut up, sit down you're in the house, you have nothing to say," she said. "Be glad your head isn't chopped off. "

A blog post, previously written by her mother, shows the girl in happier times,  a seemingly normal American family.

Her mother, she thinks, is still in the U.S.

"Hi Mom, if you see this video, please contact me," she said.

She also misses the comforts of home: "There's a restaurant called Texas Roadhouse, they have steak there," she said.

It's easy to forget she's just a teenager when she describes what she's seen.

"When you walk outside there's intestines on the street. There's a head cut off from the shrapnel. There's a leg," she said.

She married a Syrian ISIS fighter, she says, who was recently killed by a strike, and is now six months pregnant with his child.

"I still have hope, hope to go to school, hope to be a normal person, hope to be a mother to my child," she said.
