    Daesh senior French recruiter found in Kurdish refugee camp in Syria

French citizen Emilie Koenig - that stands in the US and UN lists of most wanted ISIL terrorists and is a senior recruiter of the terror group - is being held at a Kurdish refugee camp in northern Syria.

"I talked to my daughter in the weekend. She is being held at the Kurdish camp for refugees, she is being interrogated and tortured," the recruiter’s mother told media, Sputnik reported.

She wants to ask French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian to assist in the repatriation of Koenig, who "is asking her family, friends and country" for a pardon.

Koenig, 33, reportedly adopted radical ideology after being influenced by her first husband, who was of Algerian descent. In 2012, she left France for Syria leaving behind two children and recruited at least 200 French citizens to fight for the terrorist group of Daesh. Koenig, who changed her name to Ummu Tawwab, has also called for attacks on French government facilities and servicemen.
