As reported by New York Post:
A 16-year-old German girl’s yearlong adventure to join the ranks of ISIS came to an end when she was captured in Mosul.
Linda Wenzel, from the town of Pulsnitz near Dresden, was among 20 jihadists rounded up last week after the erstwhile capital of their self-declared caliphate fell, the Daily Mail reported.
The fearsome fräulein was found in a tunnel along with members of the terror group’s dreaded all-female police force, some of whom were wearing suicide vests.
Linda began her odyssey a year ago when she posed as her mother, Catherine, and boarded a flight from Frankfurt to Turkey, en route to Syria, after falling in love with a Muslim she had met online.
As reported by DailyMail:
In May last year the troubled teenager made contact on the internet with an Islamist preacher in Hamburg who sent her a copy of the Koran.
'It seemed to offer her answers in a confused life,' said Christina, 16, a fellow pupil at the town's Ernst-Rierscher-Comprehensive school.
Linda (pictured before fleeing to Syria) used the counterfeit bank authorisation and her mother's forged identification papers to buy a plane ticket to Istanbul
'Last summer, shortly before we broke up, she began leaving home with a small bag in which she had an Islamic headscarf and long flowing robes which she donned to cover up all her skin. There were some arguments with staff.'
She stole her mother's credit card and secretly bought an airline ticket to Istanbul. Until six months before she fled she had never even traveled by train alone, it has been reported.
But on Friday July 1 last year she told her mother and father she was going to spend the weekend with a friend called Caroline and would be back in Sunday.
She never came home - and was never at her friend's.
Instead she traveled to Frankfurt and caught a plane to Istanbul before being smuggled into Syria.
Eventually, she ended up in Mosul where she changed her name to Umm Mariam, and was taken as a 'jihadist bride'.
