A Dutch mother has been reunited with her teenage daughter in Turkey after she fled to marry a Dutch-Turkish Islamist. The daughter left the Netherlands in February and is now waiting at the Turkish border with her mother to travel home.
The teenager became radicalized quickly after meeting the jihadist she eventually married through social media. Her passport was seized by police when they were notified of her plans to travel to Syria.
Her mother traveled to Raqqa to find her and bring her back to Turkey. Once the teenage returns home, she will likely be questioned about her involvement in any crimes. This girl is just one of many Westerners that have radicalized and joined ISIL since their rise. (BBC)
