Harrowing footage has emerged of the moment a petrified 16-year-old ISIS bride is captured in the ruins of Mosul. German teen Linda Wenzel was captured in the war-torn city by Iraqi troops after running away from home to join ISIS last summer.
In the newly released footage, she can be heard screaming as she’s surrounded by smiling soldiers who grip her by the arms and lead her away.
The crowd can be heard whooping and jeering in the background as she cries and tries to wriggle free.
It’s believed the young girl is being held for questioning over terrorism offences and could face the death penalty in Iraq for membership in IS.
If she is executed she would be held until she was 22, according to the country’s laws.
If she returns to Germany, it’s possible that she may face 10 years in jail for supporting a terrorist organization.
Linda was among 20 Islamic State followers seized after the city fell following a 10 month battle which left 25,000 Jihadists dead and Iraq’s second largest city a sea of devastation.
The young girl spoke out for the first time since her disappearance last week, saying she desperately wants to be reunited with her family in the small eastern German town of Pulsnitz.
