German Teenager Suspected of Trying to Join ISIS Is Found in Iraq

German Teenager Suspected of Trying to Join ISIS Is Found in Iraq

Lorenz Haase, senior public prosecutor in the eastern German city of Dresden, said he could confirm that the German teenager, named only as Linda W., had been "located and identified in Iraq".

They said she had been working with the Islamic State police department. They could face the death penalty in Iraq for belonging to the militant group, it said.

Photos of a disheveled young woman in the presence of Iraqi soldiers went viral online last week, but there were contradicting reports about the girl's identity. It began in May past year when she met online a Muslim preacher from Hamburg who sent her a copy of the Quran which she brought to school every day.

"Our information ends with the girl's arrival in Istanbul about a year ago", he told the AP, as he added that further details about her whereabouts in the last year were part of an investigation.

According to Germany's domestic intelligence service (BfV), 930 people have left the country over the past few years to fight in Syria or Iraq on behalf of IS, with 20 percent of them women.

Linda Wenzel disappeared from her home in Pulsnitz, near Dresden, after converting to Islam in secret.

Commenting on status of the missing 39 Indians in Iraq's Mosul, Minister of State for Ministry of External Affairs V.K. Singh said the Government would not abandon its citizens.

German weekly Der Spiegel reports that Linda had been detained in Baghdad with three other German women, where they were questioned following the liberation of Mosul. Her mother later found a copy of the girl's plane ticket to Turkey under a bed, German media reported.

"It was very surprising, though, that the girl has been radicalized in such a way", Pulsnitz Mayor Barbara Lueke said. She described the teenager's family as very reclusive.

Iraqi forces expelled IS combatants from Mosul (which had been the extremists' main bastion in Iraq since June 2014) after more than eight months of fierce fighting.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will hold extensive talks with her Iraqi counterpart Ibrahim al-Jaafari tomorrow during which focus is expected to be on the issue.
