Two people from Mississippi appeared in federal court Monday after they were arrested over the weekend for attempting to join ISIS.

Jaelyn Delshaun Young, 19, and Muhammad Oda Dakhlalla, 22, were arrested Saturday at Golden Triangle Regional Airport, reports the Clarion Ledger. They were allegedly planning to get married in Turkey and then travel to Syria.

CBS reports that the couple, both former Mississippi State University students, wanted to work as medics for ISIS.

Young and Dakhlalla are both charged with attempting and conspiring to provide material support to a terrorist group. Their hearing will continue Tuesday.
