FBI: Flow of foreign fighters into Syria growing

WASHINGTON - The flow of foreign fighters into Syria is growing and poses a threat to national security, the director of the FBI said Friday.

 

More and more people are traveling from the US and other countries to Syria - where officials worry they are becoming radicalized, James Comey told reporters.

 

Comey said the situation is similar to that in Afghanistan in the 1980s and 1990s. But now more people are going to Syria, and it is an easier country to get to. (AP)
