France unveils plan to fight jihadist threat

Published: 04.23.14, 12:43 / Israel News

PARIS - French authorities are taking steps to crack down on the flow of young would-be jihadis embarking to fight in Syria's civil war.


The measures announced Wednesday include encouraging parents to alert police to concerns they have about their children's intentions,
so that travel restrictions can be put in place at European Union borders. Authorities will also withdraw passports from individuals suspected of wanting to travel to Syria to wage war. France also plans to increase its monitoring of web sites that post videos and other messages inciting jihadi activities.


French officials estimate that around 500 French have left for Syria, including teens as young as 15. (AP)
