A 14 YEARS MALAYSIAN TEEN GIRL SUSPECTED TO JOIN ISLAMIC STATE IN IN SYRIA, ARRESTED


KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - A 14-year-old girl suspected of attempting to head to Syria and join the Islamic State terror group was funded by a man based in the city. 
Bukit Aman’s Special Branch Counter Terrorism Division principal assistant director Senior Asst Comm Datuk Ayob Khan said initial investigations revealed that the Muar-born girl received about RM2,000 from the man for her trip. 
“She got RM2,000 and the plane tickets and was about to leave the country on the pretext of furthering her studies in Egypt.  
He said they were also trying to ascertain if she had other sponsors or if the man had funded other would-be militants.
The girl was influenced to join the IS in November last year after communication with militants on Facebook.
The teenage girl was arrested at about 7.30pm on Tuesday before she could board a Cairo-bound flight at KL International Airport. 
She was planning to marry a 22-year-old student in Cairo. Both would then go to Istanbul before securing passage to Syria. 
Intelligence sources said the girl’s would-be husband is a student at Cairo’s Al-Azhar University. 
It is learnt that the girl, who studied at a tahfiz institute in Shah Alam, had attempted to go to Cairo without her family’s consent. She had even threatened to kill herself if her parents did not let her go. 
The girl’s arrest brings the number of people linked to terrorism arrested to 68 since 2013.
