German girl's fate in Iraq not clear

However, even if she is sentenced to death in Iraq, she would not be executed before the age of 22.

The girl was reportedly first taken to a general hospital but authorities said they could not guarantee her safety there, given many victims of IS were being treated there too. The officials said she is now being held with other foreign women at a prison near Baghdad's airport.

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. Iraqi officials claim Linda W. met an Arab Muslim on the internet and married him. Haase on Saturday wouldn't confirm media reports that the teenager from Pulsnitz in eastern Germany had been fighting for the Islamic State group in Mosul.

Her mother later found a copy of the girl's plane ticket to Turkey under a bed, the newspapers said.

According to Iraqi officials, the girl was working with ISIS police. The French government has asked that the Iraqis allow the children to be returned to France.




The Washington Post has a scoop on a terrifying near-miss in Mosul, Iraq.

The senior cleric said the terrorists and their accomplices captured by Iraqi troops in Mosul should not be mistreated or tortured. He said she also might be expelled for being a foreigner or, because she is a minor reported missing in Germany, she could be handed over to Germany.

On the other hand, Iraqi foreign minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari will be visiting New Delhi from July-24-28.

It is expected that children will be handed over to the authorities of their countries of origin, while adults will be charged with terrorism. Swaraj had told the family members that an Iraqi official quoting intelligence sources had told Singh that the kidnapped Indians were deployed at a hospital construction site and then shifted to a farm before they were put in a jail in Badush. Prior to her disappearance, the teenager was considered "a brilliant student" but very quiet and withdrawn. "There is a very challenging situation", he added. Her husband is said to have been killed during the Mosul offensive.
