A 15-year-old who wanted to join Islamic State as a jihadi bride has been revealed to be the fifth girl from Bethnal Green Academy trying to join the extremist group.

The teenager, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was stopped from joining the Islamist militants in Iraq and Syria by police on the runway at Heathrow after her plane was grounded.

The girl went to the same east London school as Kadiza Sultana, 16, Shamima Begum, 15, and Amira Abase, 15, who fled to join IS fighters last month, the Sunday Telegraph reported.

She boarded a British Airways flight to Istanbul on December 6, without the knowledge of her parents, months before her schoolmates made their successful attempt.

Her plane was held as it taxied for take-off and was turned around at the last minute.

All four of the aspiring jihadists followed their friend Sharmeena Begum who first went to the Middle East to join IS. All of the girls knew each other well.
