A German teenager who ran away to join ISIS may yet face the death penalty, Iraq's Prime Minister has warned.
Linda Wenzel was dragged from the rubble in Mosul as Iraqi forces liberated the city in July and is now being held in Baghdad where her fate rests in the hands of the country's court system.
The 16-year-old, who left her home in Pulsnitz, eastern Germany, last year to join the terror group, is desperate to return to Europe amid fears she could spend years in jail.
But Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has now said Iraq's judiciary will decide if the teenager will face the death penalty.
'You know teenagers under certain laws, they are accountable for their actions especially if the act is a criminal activity when it amounts to killing innocent people,' al-Abadi said. Daily Mail>>>>>

A graduate of a prestigious naval academy shot his 22-year-old girlfriend dead and then killed himself, investigators believe. The bodies of Ohio State psychology student Heather Campbell and Kyle Lafferty, 25, were found in an apartment in the Taylor House complex in Columbus at 2:30pm on Sunday. 'It appears that the male murdered the female and then turned a firearm on himself,' Columbus police Sgt. Dave Sicilian told NBC 4. '[This was] a domestic related situation that resulted in these deaths.' One of Campbell's friends had made the grim discovery when she went to check on her friend.
'She's the one who actually found them and then she notified us and patrol officers came out to the scene and we started our investigation from there,' Sicilian said.
He added that someone in an adjoining apartment had heard something that sounded like an argument followed by a possible gunshot.Source
