Families appeal to 'Syria bound' girls to come home

Families of two of three London schoolgirls - believed to be on their way to Syria to join so-called Islamic State - have issued direct appeals to them to return home.

Relatives of Shamima Begum, 15, said they were extremely worried and urged her not to put herself in danger.

The family of Kadiza Sultana said: "In your absence, we, as a family, are feeling completely distressed".
