Iraq troops 'detain German girl who joined IS'



German prosecutors are investigating whether a 16-year-old German girl is among a group of suspected members of so-called Islamic State held in Mosul.

 
She was reportedly among a group of 20 foreigners found by Iraqi troops in a tunnel under the Old City on Thursday.


Officials are trying to confirm if she is the same girl who went missing from the German town of Pulsnitz last year.


Iraq's government has declared victory over IS in Mosul, although clashes continue in parts of the Old City.
