South African authorities have detained a 15-year-old girl who was travelling to join ISIL, the state security ministry said on Monday.

The teenager was intercepted at Cape Town airport on Sunday after evidence was found in her bedroom indicating that she had been in contact with ISIL recruiters, the ministry added.

"We can confirm that she was planning to leave the country with the intention of joining ISIL, and had been actively engaged with social media networks," Minister of State Security David Mahlobo was quoted as saying in The Star newspaper.
