UK police say 3 schoolgirls who went to Syria won’t be charged with terrorism if they return

LONDON (AP) — Three British schoolgirls who traveled to Syria to join the Islamic State group won’t be prosecuted for terrorism if they return, a senior British police officer said Tuesday.

Police chiefs also defended their handling of the case, denying a lawmaker’s allegation that the failure to stop the teens was “a huge blow” to the credibility of the force.

Mark Rowley, head of counterterrorism for the Metropolitan Police, told lawmakers that “we have no evidence to support (the teens’) involvement in terrorism.”

Other than the fact they joined a murderous death cult that burns people alive for sport, no, I guess they don’t have any evidence of terrorist leanings.

Good grief.
