Teenage Danish terror suspect: Isis was ‘exciting’

The 17-year-old girl accused of planning terror attacks against two schools in Denmark said during her trial that she found terror organisation Islamic State (Isis) ‘exciting’.

During her 15-month stay in custody following her arrest in January 2016, the girl also wrote a long part-biography, part-fiction called “The Way to Jihad” (Vejen til Jihad), in which she allegedly explained the thoughts behind her actions and imagined herself as a fully-fledged jihadi planning the attacks, the court heard.
