Turkey Deports Three French Nationals For Joining Syria Jihad

From rfi:
French terror police were Wednesday questioning two women and a man who have been thrown out of Turkey after working with jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq.

One of the women, who is 18-years-old and comes from the northern French town of Roubaix, was arrested in Turkey and deported after returning from Syria, where she said she had been the victim of violent behaviour, sources said.

The other, who is 21 and reportedly comes from the central city of Saint Etienne, spent three months in Syria and the beginning of the year, they say.

Police from the SDAT anti-terror unit started questioning the women on Wednesday and expected to talk to the man in relation to an investigation opened in November 2014.

About 1,600 French nationals or residents have either gone to fight with jihadi groups in Syria and Iraq or expressed the wish to do so.

More than 110 have died there.
