British teenager, 16, who tried to flee to Syria after being radicalised at home is sent back to her ‘lying’ parents by judge

British Muslim TeenagerA British teenager who tried to flee to Syria after being radicalised in a family home ‘saturated’ with Islamic State propaganda is set to return to her parents – despite a judge saying she is a ‘significant risk’.

Bomb-making guides, images of beheadings and plans of MI5 headquarters were found at the East London home of the bright 16-year-old, where her Algerian-born father had let her watch ultra-violent material so often that she became numb to its content.

The girl, who cannot be named, had planned to join Islamic State in December 2014 to become a jihadi bride, but was detained on a Turkey-bound aircraft at Heathrow.
