UK police seek to halt Brits joining Syria rebels
British police are launching a nationwide bid to prevent young people from traveling to Syria to take part in the fighting there.


Metropolitan Police officials said Thursday they are increasingly concerned about the number of young people intending to go to Syria to join the conflict. Police say the number of Syria-related arrests in Britain has risen, with 40 reported in the first three months of 2014 compared with 25 in all of last year. (AP)
