A teenage girl with Islamic State group sympathies who planned to attack Danish schools, including a Copenhagen Jewish institution, with home-made bombs is handed a six-year jail sentence.

The would-be jihadist, aged just 15 at the time, had tried to contact IS group leaders on Twitter but was arrested after her parents became suspicious that she was experimenting with chemicals in the basement of the family home.

A court in the town of Holbaek, outside Copenhagen found the girl, who is now 17, guilty of “attempting a terrorist act” on Tuesday.
