There was "no sign" that three girls had been radicalised before they ran away to join Islamic State militants in Syria - and no clue as to how they paid to travel there, MPs have heard.
The families of the three schoolgirls who disappeared together said they did not see any noticeable change in behaviour - not their religious devotion, everyday behaviour nor use of social media.
Fahmida Aziz, cousin of 16-year-old Kadiza Sultana, said they were also at a loss to explain how they got hold of the money to pay for the flights to Turkey, which would have cost more than £1,000.
MPs at the Home Affairs Select Committee also heard that after the first girl ran away, risk assessments should have been done on the seven girls believed to be at risk - but this was not done, and still has not been done on two younger sisters of the girls, who attend the same school.
