Police 'role in Radicalising Sisters'

Solicitors for their families say that UK police were "complicit" in the "grooming and radicalising" of three Bradford sisters believed to be in Syria with their nine children. Solicitors said in a letter to MP Keith Vaz that officers "actively" encouraged the women to contact their brother thought to be fighting in Syria.
In the letter to Mr Vaz - chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee - solicitors representing Mr Shoaib and Mr Iqbal said they were "extremely disappointed" with the way the case had been handled.
They expressed "grave concerns" that officers from the North East Counter Terrorism Unit had allegedly been "actively promoting and encouraging" the three sisters to contact their brother.
