German teenager says she was ‘idiot’ for joining ISIS in first interview since capture

Mom and sis look less than thrilled mit Linda.

A German teenage girl has said she was an “idiot” for joining Islamic State and the decision has wrecked her future, in her first interview since her arrest by Iraqi forces in Mosul.

Linda Wenzel, 17, claimed her escape was a “stupid idea” but showed little remorse in the first meeting with her family since she left her hometown of Pulsnitz, near Dresden, for Syria in July last year.

Miss Wenzel was reunited with her mother Katharina and sister Miriam, who were allowed to visit her at the Palace of Justice in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.
