UK police: Missing girls entered Syria
UK police say three missing London schoolgirls who left Britain to join the ISIL terrorists have crossed into Syria through Turkish border.
The Metropolitan Police said the officers have “reason to believe” the three teenagers from Bethnal Green Academy in east London, have joined the Takfiri terrorists in Syria, Press TV reported.
Shamima Begum, 15, Kadiza Sultana, 16, and Amira Abase, 15, boarded a flight from London Gatwick airport to Turkey last Tuesday.
UK police have been under fire for delay in informing the Turkish authorities about the teenagers travel. Some reports suggest that Scotland Yard waited three days before telling the Turkish authorities that the teenagers had flown to Istanbul.
