Swedish teenager rescued from Isis in Iraq

Iraqi Kurdish troops have rescued a Swedish teenager from Islamic State near the extremist-controlled city of Mosul, the Kurdish regional government said.

The rescue operation by the Kurdish anti-terrorist forces took place on 17 February near Mosul, 225 miles (360km) north-west of Baghdad, it said.

The official statement identified the girl by name, saying she was a 16-year-old from the town of Boras who had been “misled” by an Isis member in Sweden to travel to Syria and later to Mosul.
