‘How did the 3 UK teenagers become radicalized? We spoke to a young woman in her early 20’s who highlights the attractive men used to recruit women (2 March 2015)’.
The British teens Kadiza Sultana, Amira Abase and Shamima Begum left the UK on 17 February, arriving in Istanbul later in the day. In Istanbul the girls boarded a bus for south-eastern city of Şanlıurfa (or just plain Urfa).
In the Daily Mail we read that the “girls are believed to have crossed from Turkey to Syria through the town of Arai. [On Sunday, 8 March,] Sky News reporter Stuart Ramsay said: ‘We are told by very good sources in Raqqa that they are there and that they are under the control of Islamic State’. He also revealed that they were staying with a British girl – thought to be a pupil from their school who went missing in December and is believed to have joined IS. The 15-year-old student, the first to disappear from Bethnal Green Academy in east London, has not been identified by the authorities”.
