VIENNA: Austrian police say that one of two teenage girls who left farewell letters early this month announcing plans to "fight for Islam" has called her sister from Turkey to say that both are all right.
Letters left by Samra Kesinovic, 16 and Sabina Selimovic, 15, had said the two were going to Syria. Police spokesman Thomas Keiblinger said Wednesday the older girl made the call last week.
Identical letters left by the two had suggested they were ready to die fighting for Islam, saying: "We will meet in Paradise."
Both girls come from families who immigrated from Bosnia. Keiblinger says Austrian and Turkish police are working closely together to try and find the girls.
Austria's interior ministry says about 100 Austrians are fighting in Syria.
