When 15-year-old Linda W. started to wear long-sleeved clothes early last year, it quickly struck her classmates and teachers in the sleepy eastern German town of Pulsnitz as odd. Her conversion to Islam was noticed almost immediately in a part of Germany where only 0.5 percent of the population is Muslim and where the backlash against Chancellor Angela Merkel's pro-refugee policy had been stronger than almost anywhere else in the country.
"At 15, She Joined ISIS After Converting to Islam. Now This German Teen Wants to Go Home." is from the July 24, 2017 WorldViews section of The Washington Post. It was written by Rick Noack and narrated by Sam Scholl.
