Danish student who killed 100 ISIS militants has $1 million bounty on her head, is treated as a terrorist at home in Copenhagen
A Danish student who gave up her studies to fight ISIS believes she has a $1million bounty on her head but claims she is being treated as "a terrorist" back home.
Joanna Palani, 22, claims to have killed 100 militants during battles in Iraq and Syria as a crackshot sniper.
She also says she freed a group of women and children being held as sex slaves by ISIS and then taught them how to become soldiers and fight back.
Palani is of Iranian-Kurdish ancestry and her father and grandfather were both Peshmerga fighters.
She was born in a UN refugee camp before moving to Copenhagen as a toddler and learned to fire a gun at nine-years-old.
But she says life has been a struggle since she returned home from her heroics.
She said: "I was willing to give up my life and my freedom to stop ISIS advancing, so that everyone in Europe can be safe.
"This was my choice.
"But I am seen as a terrorist by my own country."
