Girls suspected to have joined ISIS might still be in Kenya

21 May 2015, 13:38 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Two Kenyan girls suspected to have joined the terror group ISIS might still be in the country, police have stated.

The two girls were said to have travelled to Syria to join the Islamic State after they sent a text message to their mother saying that they had indeed left the country.

However, police have said that the phone the message the girls sent to on of the girls' cousin with has been traced to Pangani area in Nairobi and they thus believe that the girls are still in the country.

" We believe they are still here. The phone used to send the message to their mother was traced to a place in Pangani Nairobi," a CID officer attached to the case that did not want to be named told News24.

Salwa Abdalla and Twafiqa Dahir, both university students were declared missing earlier in the week by their mother, who said that they had disappeared from their base in Nairobi South C.

They had claimed moving to Syria, purportedly to join ISIS.

It is not clear what action police are going to take in as far as tracing the girls is concerned but the mother of one of the girls wants them to be rescued.

" If they are still in the country," I would like them to be traced and saved, Amina Dahir, mother to Twafiqa told News24 on phone in an interview.

The development is worrying for the country, as more and more young Kenyans fall victim to radicalism and terrorist organizations.
