Hundreds of young people in UK still want to join Isis in Syria

Hundreds of British teenage girls are still keen on joining Islamic State (Isis) despite the death of a London schoolgirl in Syria, according to counter-radicalisation experts, raising fresh doubts about the effectiveness of the government’s strategy to combat radicalism.

A significant number of young British women will not, they say, have been dissuaded from travelling to Syria following the killing of Kadiza Sultana during an airstrike on the city of Raqqa, the de facto Isis capital.
