Mideast Syria Inside the Caliphate Honeymoon in Raqqa

European fighters in Syria more than double, posing terror threat as they begin to return home

In this photo released on Sept. 29, 2014 by a militant website, which has been verified and is consistent with other AP reporting, two members of the Islamic State group skewer fresh meat for barbecue on the bank of the Euphrates river in Raqqa, Syria. Helping fighters marry, whether Syrians or foreigners, is a key priority for the Islamic State group. Aside from the stipend that fighters get, foreign fighters receive $500 when they marry, to help them put together their new household. (Militant website via AP)The number of fighters from Western Europe pouring into Syria has more than doubled since last year, swelling the ranks of the Islamic State and other extremist groups by more than 30,000 despite efforts by the U.S. and other Western countries to cut off the flow, according to a new report by an international security firm.
