GERMAN Jihadi bride Linda Wenzel has been caged for six years in Baghdad for her role as an Islamic enforcer with terror group ISIS. Wenzel, 17, who last year sobbed on TV “I have ruined my life,” could have faced the death penalty.
German media reported that a German embassy representative in Iraq was in court yesterday to witness her sentencing.
She received five years for joining ISIS and one year for entering Iraq illegally.
Wenzel was found in the rubble of ISIS stronghold Mosul back in the summer of 2017.
Charges were laid against her and three other German women captured with her.
Schoolgirl Wenzel fled to Turkey then into Syria last year from her hometown of Pulsnitz in eastern Germany after being groomed online by a Chechen IS fighter who she married.
He was killed in the savage fighting for Mosul while she was employed by the terror group enforcing the strict Islamic dress code on women in the city.
She burst into tears after her capture and said she just wanted to come home.
She was later filmed with her mother Katharine, 48, in Baghdad.
She said she never fought for the terror group, lived in a variety of houses in Mosul and, after the death of her husband, “barely left the house.”
It is understood Germany wants her to be allowed to serve her sentence in her homeland although no treaty exists for such arrangements between Baghdad and Berlin.
