US Ambassador Samantha Power says the United States is hoping for unanimous approval of a UN resolution calling for global action to prevent the growing "phenomenon" of foreigners traveling to fight for terrorist groups when President Barack Obama hosts a Security Council summit on Sept. 25.


Power told reporters Wednesday that foreign fighters like those in Iraq and Syria are participating in "brutal atrocities" in the countries they travel to, and often return home radicalized by their experiences "posing threats of the most profound kind to their fellow citizens."
