ISIS Hopefuls

Hosted by

Three teenage girls from a Denver suburb are suspected of trying to join jihadis in Syria. After skipping school on Friday, the three were reported missing to police by their parents. The girls were detained at Frankfurt airport, reportedly on their way to Syria by way of Turkey. They are now back with their families, but the story has raised fears again of radicalized Americans being seduced into joining ISIS.
