Dramatic video today emerged of a German schoolgirl being dragged from the clutches of Islamic State in the Iraqi city of Mosul.  

Linda Wenzel, 16, ran away from her home in Pulsnitz to join the fanatics after being groomed online by an IS recruiter.

She flew to Istanbul, was smuggled into Iraq, marred a Chechen fighter who was killed and ended up in Mosul where an estimated 25,000 Isis volunteers died in the battle to retake the city.

The 16-year-old Jihadi bride was filmed by an Iraqi soldier when she was dragged, filthy, dazed and wounded in her arm, from the IS stronghold that took nine months to capture.

The video was aired on the German newspaper Bild’s website for the first time today.

In the video two men can be seen escorting Linda who seems to wince in pain from a wound.  She looks at the ground and cries miserably as she is led away.

Germany is negotiating with Iraqi authorities to get her back home where she faces charges of belonging to and supporting a terrorist organisation.  

It is unclear exactly what role she performed for the group in Mosul, but if she fought and killed for it she could be facing a long jail term.

One German magazine,  citing Iraqi security sources, said she and the four German women she was found with in the rubble of Mosul last month worked for the Islamic State’s “morality police” responsible for women adhering to strict dress codes.

Thos who did not obey faced a whipping – or worse. Whether Linda Wenzel was involved in brutalising anyone is unclear.

Two of her compatriots come from the western city of Mannheim, identified as 50-year-old Lamia K. and her 21-year-old daughter Nadia, both Germans with Moroccan roots. They attended a radical Salafist mosque in the city before leaving their homeland for the so-called Caliphate of Islamic State.

Both were involved in recruiting women to join Islamic State and made several videos online.
