A 16-year-old girl who stabbed a policeman at a train station in Hanover, Germany, was acting under orders from Islamic State, federal prosecutors said.

Safia S., a German-Moroccan dual citizen who is in prison awaiting trial, was charged with attempted murder and with being a supporter of the jihadist group, the prosecutors said on Monday.

She travelled to Istanbul in January, where she met members of the group who planned to help her enter IS-controlled territory in Syria. Her trip was aborted when her mother brought her back to Germany, where she stabbed and seriously wounded the policeman in February, the prosecution said in a statement.
