Jihad Girls Gunpoint Retraction Of Desire To Go Home

Austrian anti-terrorism police believe that an interview given to a French magazine allegedly with one of the two teenage girls who fled to Syria to join in the jihad was probably carried out at gunpoint.

Earlier in the month based on conversations the girls had with parents and friends it was revealed that they regretted leaving Austria and wanted to come home.

Samra Kesinovic, 17, and her friend Sabina Selimovic, 15, left the Austrian capital Vienna in April this year, leaving a note for their parents explaining that they had gone to fight in Syria, a decision believed to be influenced by their recent radicalisation through a local mosque.
