Britons who want to fight for ISIS in Syria are travelling via CANADA to avoid detection by security services

Britons who want to join ISIS fighting in Syria are travelling via Canada to avoid detection, it was revealed.

Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said the tactics used by radicalised extremists to escape being caught by police were becoming ‘increasingly sophisticated’.

He warned it was a ‘continuing struggle’ for the security services to keep tabs on people from the UK determined to travel to the region.

Some 700 British citizens are thought to have travelled to Syria and Iraq and there are growing fears about them returning to the UK to plot terror attacks here.

    Good to know so now Customs & Immigration Canada can profile (interrogate) everyone with UK citizenship with Muslim names at any Canadian airport. Yeah like that’s going to happen anytime soon… Just continue to interrogate elderly people with walkers.

    After the 24/7 fellating given Omar Khadr by the Star who can blame them?

    Sure let them go with one way ticket of no return.

    So they are being “sophisticated” by not using a direct flight to Turkey. Huh?

    And the authorities are helplessly wringing their hands over these terrorists returning to Britain.
