Vienna ‘jihad’ teenager wants to come home

One of two Viennese teenagers who are thought to be fighting with the militant extremist movement Islamic State (Isis) near Raqqa in Syria wants to return to Austria, according to a report in the Österreich newspaper.

The two girls, 16-year-old Samra and 15-year-old Sabina, are both of Bosnian origin and left Vienna in April, telling their parents in a letter that they wanted to “fight for Islam”.

Samra, who is thought to have married a Chechen, wants to come home according to an inside source, as she has seen too much of the horrors of war.

Both Samra and Sabina are reported to be in an area where they will have experienced public floggings, beheadings and frequent air attacks.
