Two teenage girls who became ‘poster girls’ for Isis when they left Austria for Syria are now pregnant – and say they want to come home, Metro reports.
Samra Kesinovic, 17, and Sabina Selimovic, 15, left for Vienna in April to get involved in the so-called holy war, telling parents in a note not to look for them because they had gone ‘to serve and die for Allah.’
They quickly became poster girls for the Islamic sect, now say they want to return home after being married off to two Chechen fighters and becoming pregnant.
A spokesman for Austria’s Interior Ministry, Karl-Heinnz Grundboeck said, however, that a return is unlikely.
He said: ‘The main problem is about people coming back to Austria. Once they leave it is almost impossible.”
Metro reports that since the girls arrived in Isis’ proclaimed capital of Raqqa in northern Syria, they have become a potent propaganda tool for the terror group, with their social media accounts – believed to have been taken over by Isis communications experts – showing the pair smiling and wearing traditional clothing, flanked by armed fighters.
Their ill-found fame will make it hard for them to get away undetected, security experts have warned.
ISIS continues to recruit members from around the world through social media.
