German prosecutors say they’ve indicted a 21-year-old woman on suspicion of membership in ISIS and keeping three Yazidis as slaves in Syria.
Federal prosecutors said Wednesday that the German-Algerian woman, identified as Sarah O. for privacy reasons, traveled to Syria as a teenager in 2013, joined ISIS, and married a fellow German ISIS recruit.
Both allegedly received firearms training and conducted “guard and police duties” in ISIS-controlled areas. They also forced a Yazidi girl and two Yazidi women to work in their household and convert to Islam.
She was arrested in September upon her return to Germany.
O.’s parents-in-law, 51-year-old Ahmed S. and 48-year-old Perihan S., allegedly helped their sons supply ISIS with equipment such as firearms magazines and scopes. They are indicted on suspicion of aiding ISIS.
