LONDON - British counter-terrorism officers stopped a plane as it taxied towards the runway at Heathrow to prevent a 15-year old girl from traveling to Syria to join Islamist fighters, the Evening Standard newspaper said on Wednesday.

The girl, from east London, had saved up and bought a ticket to Istanbul without her parents' knowledge, the paper said.

She was removed from the flight and has since returned home but another girl, also aged 15, who was taken off the plane with her, managed to leave before police could intervene, it added.
