More Than 100 Chinese Citizens Have Joined ISIS

More than 100 Chinese citizens are fighting on behalf of the Islamic State after facing harsh societal hardships in China, according to a new report.

New America, a non-partisan think-tank, gathered information from sources inside Syria, and looked into basic demographic information, including education level, age, origin, and religious beliefs of the fighters. The report estimates 118 fighters from China have joined the group responsible for tens of thousands of deaths across the Middle East and deadly terrorist attacks in Western countries including the recent attack in Nice, France that killed 84 people.
