French teenage girl caught heading for Syria jihad
A 14-year-old French girl is in a care home after being stopped at Lyon airport, apparently heading for Syria to wage jihad. She is the third French minor to be found trying to fight holy war against Bashar al-Assad's regime.
Earlier this week the girl, from the French city of Grenoble, told her parents via text message that she had been selected to join the jihad war in Syria and had run away from home.
She was detained before boarding a plane bound with a one-way ticket for Istanbul, from where she intended to go to the Syrian border.
