Austrian teens ‘wanted to be jihadi brides’

Three teenage girls from Graz have been detained in custody in Jakomini prison after allegedly planning to leave Austria for Syria where they intended to marry Islamic State fighters.

The girls, aged 15, 16 and 19, are reported to be originally from Chechnya.

According to the Kronen Zeitung newspaper they were able to communicate with jihadists after getting in touch with a 16-year-old Bosnian girl from Salzburg and her 17-year-old friend, who had tried to travel to Syria via Romania at the end of last year but were stopped by police.
