Woman detained amid fears of trip to Syria charged with child abduction


A woman feared to have been planning to travel to Syria with her four children has been charged with child abduction, Scotland Yard said.

Zahera Tariq, 33, was detained in Turkey on Tuesday after the family went missing from their home in Walthamstow, north-east London, last week.

She will appear at Camberwell Green Magistrates' Court  in London later today.
