At least 85 British jihadis and fighters have been killed in Syria’s brutal civil war

At least 85 British jihadis and fighters involved in Syria’s bloody civil war have been killed, the Defence Secretary said today.

Michael Fallon confirmed around 850 people linked to the UK and regarded as a security threat are now believed to have taken part in the conflict.

While just under 50 per cent are thought to have returned to the UK, more than 10 per cent have been killed, Mr Fallon said.
