COLUMBUS, Miss. — A young couple from Mississippi is in federal custody after planning to join ISIS on their honeymoon.

Police say Jaelyn Young, 20, and her husband Muhammad Dakhlalla, 22, married in June and made plans to fly to Europe.

But instead of honeymooning in Paris or Tuscany, they wanted to go to Syria to join ISIS.

Investigators also say the couple offered their skills to the terror group.

The FBI says the pair seemed enthusiastic but concerned about the transition from American to ISIS operatives.

But investigators say the messages never made it to ISIS.

Instead, the couple communicated only with undercover FBI agents.

Over the weekend, police arrested the couple at an airport.

Investigators say Young noted it was easy to get through security here.

A judge denied  bond for the couple.
