Austrian Teen Girls Become Pin Ups For Syrian Jihad

Interpol is searching for two Austrian teenage girls who they believe have been tricked into going to Syria to fight on the side of Islamic rebels.

The teenagers vanished last week. The first their parents knew was when they started getting messages posted on social media networks saying that they had gone to fight the "holy war."

But the parents say that they don't believe the messages are being written by the girls.  Authorities suspect they have been tricked into leaving the country.

Samra Kesinovic is just 16, and her friend Sabina Selimovic 15. They come from Bosnian refugee families who settled in Austria after the ethnic wars of the 1990's and were born in the country.

New photos on their Facebook pages show them  brandishing Kalashnikov rifles – and in some cases surrounded by armed men.

In the latest posting they announced plans to marry so that they could become "holy warriors" and in the messages - which their families doubt originated from them - they say: "Death is our goal". Austrian officials believe that the pair, judging by the scenes around them, are in a training camp and are not only already married, but also
already living in the homes of their new husbands.

In Vienna the family admitted that the two had recently started going to a local mosque run by a radical Imam, Ebu Tejma.

The two girls fathers are reportedly already abroad looking for their daughters who have not contacted their parents, to have been sending messages to their friends over the Internet talking about their new lives and adding: "nobody will ever find us here."

Austrian media said the two attractive young teenagers had become the public face for the call to jihad in Syria, and alleged that they had been tricked into going to the country in order to publicise the call to arms.
