BERLIN - A German teenager who joined Islamic State is presently being held in detainment in Iraq and says she laments joining the jihadist group and simply needs to return home to her family, media wrote about Sunday.

"I simply need to make tracks in an opposite direction from here," she was cited as saying. "I need to make tracks in an opposite direction from the war, from the numerous weapons, from the commotion."

She included: "I simply need to go home to my family."

The media outlets said the young person had revealed to them she lamented joining IS, needed to be removed to Germany and would coordinate with experts.

German specialists have been exploring a high school young girl who disappeared from Pulsnitz the previous summer for charged contacts with the jihadist group about preparing a possible act of terrorism.
