Two teenage girls, ages 14 and 15, were arrested in southern France on charges tied to terrorism.
Specifically, the two girls were thought to be planning a terror attack, according to investigators.
“The pair, aged 14 and 15, were taken in for questioning by the anti-terrorism prosecution service after a search of both girls’ homes turned up evidence suggesting they could have been planning an attack, a judicial source said.
“‘At this stage we do not know how far advanced the preparations were,’ a source close to the inquiry told AFP, adding no weapons had been found.”
The frequency with which females in general, and young girls, specifically, have been involving themselves in jihad has been on the rise.
Several young girls have recently been arrested in anti-terror raids in France in recent times.
Again, from AFP:
“The country remains in a state of emergency after suffering a spate of deadly militant attacks over the past two years.
“Three teenage girls were arrested in late February on suspicion they had chatted on Telegram, an encrypted instant messaging platform used by French militant Rachid Kassim to call for attacks on France.
“An anti-terrorism judge in Paris charged the trio last month.”
