Britain to pass new laws to counter homegrown Islamist fighters

LONDON - Prime Minister David Cameron will announce new laws on Monday to try to stop radicalized Britons returning from Syria and Iraq launching attacks on British soil, after a video purportedly showed a London-accented man beheading a US journalist.

  

Ministers
from Cameron's Conservative party say the new laws are needed to beef up Britain's defenses against the threat that those who have been radicalized and fought alongside Islamic extremists could return home with violent intent.

   

Among the new measures reported to be under consideration is a temporary ban on allowing the re-entry of British Islamists who have fought in Iraq or Syria. Airlines may also be obliged to share more data about passengers.

 

British nationals could be allowed to keep their citizenship but would be prevented from re-entering the country for a period of time, the BBC said, citing a government source.
