Morocco Expels a British Family over an Attempt to Join ISIS

Rabat – On Saturday, Moroccan authorities expelled a British family they said was planning to join the Islamic State’s ranks, via Turkey.

Members of the British family included parents who have converted to Islam recently, and four children — a month-old baby and three under 12 years.

A senior security source told Hespress that the family arrived in Marrakesh from London on July 18th. “On Friday, the family boarded a flight from Morocco to Istanbul in an attempt to enter Syria via Turkey.”

However, Turkish authorities apprehended the family and put them on a flight back to Casablanca on the same day, the source stated.
