A German schoolgirl who joined ISIS was escored by soldiers after being dragged from her Mosul hideout.

Linda Wenzel, 16, was taken to a temporary prison after being detained in July and faces death if found guilty of joining ISIS.

Meanwhile, German authorities are attempting to bring her back to Germany for trial supporting and being a member of a terrorist organization.

Wenzel radicalized in Germany, changing her name to Mariam. She joined ISIS last year, when she stole her mother's identity to buy a plane ticket, then fled to Iraq. Wenzel then converted to Islam and married an ISIS terrorist from Chechnya whom she had met online.

It is not clear if she took part in the violence or what her role was.

Later, Wenzel told German media she regretted joining Isis and wanted to come home to her family in Pulsnitz.
