Dresden prosecutor Lorenz Haase said Saturday that his office has not applied for the return of 16-year-old Linda W. from Pulsnitz in eastern Germany, who was found in Mosul earlier this month.

Search operations are underway to locate the 39 missing Indians who were taken as prisoners by the Islamic State in 2014 from Mosul city and there is high level coordination between Iraqi and Indian concerned authorities, Iraq Embassy to India said on Sunday. It began in May a year ago when she met online a Muslim preacher from Hamburg who sent her a copy of the Quran which she brought to school every day. The fate of her husband was not known.

The media outlets said the teenager had told them she regretted joining IS, wanted to be extradited to Germany and would cooperate with authorities.

The girl is reported to be in good health and will be interrogated this week by Iraqi officials. The French government has asked that the Iraqis allow the children to be returned to France.
