UK girls’ list for Syria trip: Makeup, bras, epilator

London (CNN)The handwritten checklist looks like something any teenaged girl might make ahead of a vacation trip: makeup, bras, underwear, boots, an epilator.

But this list was apparently made by the three UK schoolgirls suspected of traveling from London to Syria to join ISIS, according to Britain’s Guardian newspaper, which has seen the document.

The girls’ families told British lawmakers Tuesday they had no idea what the girls were planning, and said they were baffled by the teenagers’ decision to leave their homes and families.

The three East London classmates — Shamima Begum, 15; Kadiza Sultana, 16; and Amira Abase, 15 — boarded a Turkish Airlines plane from London’s Gatwick Airport to Istanbul on February 17. They are thought to have crossed the Turkish border into Syria within days.
