One in six British jihadis who have gone to Syria and Iraq to fight with ISIS have been killed – but 400 are back in the UK

One in six British jihadis who have gone to Syria and Iraq to fight with ISIS have been killed – but 400 are back in the UK, it has been claimed.

Security chiefs believe at least 15 per cent of all British extremists who have fled to join the terror group have been wiped out amid intensified airstrikes and military operations on the ground.

But with 850 fanatics believed to have travelled to ISIS strongholds from Britain, there are fresh fears that half of them have already returned.
