Newlyweds Jaelyn Delshaun Young, 19, and Muhammad Oda Dakhlalla, 22, of Starkville, Mississippi, were arrested over the weekend at the airport in Columbus en route to Istanbul, Turkey in an alleged plot to join ISIS, according to The New York Times.
Magistrate Judge S. Allan Alexander in Oxford on Tuesday ordered the two held without bail. The FBI arrested the Mississippi State University students Saturday after they allegedly used social media to make plans for the trip “to Syria via Greece and Turkey as a honeymoon ruse” in an effort to join the terrorist group, the report says.
The couple married on June 6, writes the news outlet.
From The New York Times:
The Justice Department said the arrests were part of a continuing effort to stanch the flow of Americans seeking to fight in the Middle East after being lured by online recruiters to join groups the American government has designated terrorist organizations….
The arrests were the latest in an effort by the Justice Department to stop people from traveling to Syria, Iraq and elsewhere by making arrests before they board flights out of the country.
The couple had bragged to the federal agent that they were unlikely to get caught because the Golden Triangle Regional Airport in Columbus was small and lacked security.
