'Jihadi bride' Aqsa Mahmood denies recruiting London girls

The parents of a so-called "jihadi bride" from Scotland have said their daughter denies recruiting three London schoolgirls to Islamic State.

Khalida and Muzaffar Mahmood told the BBC they were in touch with 20-year-old Aqsa Mahmood last week.

They said she insisted she had not been in touch with the three Bethnal Green girls who travelled to Syria last month.

James Cook reports.
