Footage shows the capture of German schoolgirl who joined Daesh

Footage has emerged of the capture of a German schoolgirl who joined Daesh last year.

Linda Wenzel, 16, ran away from her home in the small town of Pulsnitz near Dresden last year to join Daesh after she was groomed online by a Daesh recruiter.

In the video Wenzel can be heard screaming and crying as she is dragged by Iraqi soldiers through the ruins in Mosul.

She could be sentenced to death under Iraq’s counter-terror laws. If she is she would not be executed before reaching the age of 22.

Wenzel is one of a number of German women who joined Daesh in recent years currently being held in an Iraqi prison.
