Two teenaged Norwegian sisters who ran away from home in October, saying they wanted to help rebels in Syria, are indeed in the war-wracked country, a lawyer for their family confirmed Thursday.
The youngest, aged 16, is injured and has to be treated before she and her sister can leave Syria, the lawyer, Geir Lippestad, told Norwegian public broadcaster NRK. Norwegian media reported the 16-year-old had a bullet wound.
The other sister is aged 19. Both are from a family of Somalian origin living in Norway.
