Mother sues France over jihadist son’s trip to Syria

In the first case of its kind, a mother is suing the French state after her teenage son travelled to Syria to join jihadists fighting there, claiming the authorities should have done more to stop him from making the journey to the war-torn country.

The 16-year-old boy travelled to Syria via Turkey last year, his mother, named as Nadine D, told French daily Le Parisien in an interview published Monday.
