Thursday 03 July 2014
The 15-year-old girl from Hilversum picked up in Germany last month on her way to Syria was one of a group of girls planning to travel to the Middle Eastern country, the Volkskrant says on Thursday.
Sources told the paper four or five under-age girls were planning to make the trip and join rebel forces there.
Moezdalifa El Adoui was reported missing on June 21 after leaving a message behind saying she was going to Syria. A day later she was picked up at Dusseldorf airport. The girl is still being questioned by police about her travel plans.
‘She is not in a cell and she is not a suspect. She is a witness and has been given a lawyer via the child protection council,’ police spokesman Thomas Aling said.
