Dawood sisters already in Syria smuggler claims

A smuggler with links to Islamic State extremists has told the BBC that the family of 12 who disappeared from Bradford is now in Syria.

Sisters Khadija, Sugra and Zohra Dawood and their children disappeared after going on an Islamic pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia. It is thought they crossed the border near the Turkish town of Urfa and are possibly heading for the Syrian town of Raqqa.
