Ayşenur İnci, an alleged member of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) who was on the Turkish government’s list of wanted terrorists, was released pending trial after she surrendered to Turkish authorities at the Turkish-Iraqi border, the Cumhuriyet newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Turkey’s Ministry of Interior had listed İnci in the so-called “blue category” of people wanted for suspected terrorism and had offered TL 1.5 million ($300,000) for information leading to her capture.

İnci was reportedly released pending trial by a court three days after she surrendered to Turkish security forces at the Habur border gate on the Turkish-Iraqi border.
