ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Video released by Iraq's military appears to show one of four German women captured in Mosul thought to be fighters for the Islamic State, one possibly as young as 16. The women were first reported to be found on July 22. The video released on Monday (July 31) shows a single woman surrounded by Iraqi security forces, said to be an Islamic State sniper. She's asked, in English, what her name is. She appears to respond with "Linda". Last week Germany's foreign ministry reported that one of the women seized is named Linda Wenzel, a 16-year old who had run away from her home in Saxony last year.
