It's the first time two women were actually arrested at Zaventem airport when they were trying to leave Belgium on their way to Syria. The two are an 18-year-old Muslim and her 17-year-old friend who was converted to the Islamic faith. Both are from the Antwerp region.
They were apprehended last Thursday. The 18-year-old, a woman of Moroccan descent, is being kept in custody and is being questioned by the judicial authorities. Her companion, who is of minor age, was referred to a juvenile magistrate.
