Sahra and Nora are among some 100 girls and young women from France who have left to join jihad in Syria, up from just a handful 18 months ago, when the trip was not even on Europe's security radar, officials say.Sahra's family has talked to her three times since she left, but her mother, Severine, thinks her communication is scripted by jihadis, possibly from ISIS.The family moved here from northern France five years ago so the children could be raised in a safer environment.Nora's family knows less about her quiet path out of France, but considerably more about the network that arranged her one-way trip to Syria.
