German police said Tuesday they had foiled a bid by two Turks to kidnap a 17-year-old girl for a forced marriage in Turkey.

The attempted abduction of the French teenager of Turkish origin, from Sarregumines, in eastern France, took place on Sunday, just across the German border, in Saarbruecken, police said.

Two Turks, aged 35 and 37, blocked the car in which the alleged victim was being driven by a 20-year-old friend at a traffic light, forcing her into their own car.

"Thanks to eyewitness reports, a regional search was launched which allowed police in Rhineland-Palatinate to intercept the car" some 60 kilometers (40 miles) further east, police in Saarland said.

A preliminary investigation found that the two arrested men wanted to take the French-born girl to Turkey where she was to be married against her will, police added.

Wow, I have heard of problems with girls getting married by force when they are on a holiday in their parent´s native countries, while they are in high school. But I never heard of this in the Turkish community in Holland, only in Northern African and Western African communities living in Holland. Strange that this happened... Anyway, I guess it would be very difficult to make her marry against her will in Turkey, especially for the law. It´s a strange story...
