Prosecutors say she travelled to Syria in late 2014 and married an IS fighter. The couple allegedly moved to Tal Afar, Iraq, where they lived in an IS-seized house. The woman ran the household, receiving $100 per month from IS and leaving her husband free to fight for IS.
Prosecutors didn´t detail the circumstances of her return to Germany. Turkey is currently engaged in a push to deport IS members.
