Teenage German girl captured during Iraqi liberation of Mosul

16-year-old runway German girl detained in Iraq, suspected of ISIS link

She is belived to be in her 30s, and was captured in Mosul's Old City, located west of the Tigris river where some of the hardest fighting took place between the Iraqi forces and the ISIS militants. However, even if she is sentenced to death in Iraq, she would not be executed before the age of 22. Iraqi officials claim Linda W. met an Arab Muslim on the internet and married him.

He said there was a possibility that Linda might be put on trial in Iraq or that she also might be expelled for being a foreigner. Swaraj had made the statements after Mosul town was freed from clutches of ISIS, lending hope to the families of 39 youths for a safe return home.

Iraqi officials told The Associated Press that her interrogation will begin next week and that German interpreters will be brought in because she doesn't speak much Arabic.

Germany's foreign ministry declined to comment on the report.

The spokesman for PMF Karim al-Nouri recently also rejected claims that the USA had a role in Mosul's liberation saying that, "Washington wants to have a share in the final victory announcement against ISIS and benefit from it, but I have to emphasize that this victory was won by the Iraqi people and the United States did not play any role in it". The French and German embassies have visited the women.

The officials say the women had allegedly been working with IS in the police force.

German newspapers have reported the teen ran away from home a year ago in the city of Pulsnitz after communicating with IS extremists online. They expect that the children will be handed over to the countries they belong to and the women will be tried on terrorism charges. "They might be in Badush prison", he was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

Before her disappearance, she told her parents that she was going to a friend's house, but investigators found plane tickets to Istanbul beneath her mattress.

"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. "There is a very challenging situation", he added. Two were men and eight were children.
